Develop Nova Scotia, together with a planning consultant, is in the process of developing a Comprehensive Master Plan in consultation with area residents and community stakeholders. Consultation was held in February and March of 2019, with a draft plan now under review.
The Province of Nova Scotia is interested in improving the visitor offering and experience within the context of Peggys Cove as a living and working coastal village, with its authentic cultural and natural landscapes. While Peggys Cove has long been recognized as one of Nova Scotia’s most iconic tourism destinations (with around 700,000 people visiting each year), challenges in regard to traffic volume, pedestrian safety, servicing infrastructure, governance, and overall sustainably have existed for some time. A Comprehensive Master Planning process is needed to develop short, medium, and long-term strategies for improving and enhancing the Peggys Cove experience for both visitors and residents.
