Peggy’s Cove Master Plan

Peggy's Cove

Develop Nova Scotia, on behalf of Tourism Nova Scotia, has engaged in a Master Plan for Peggy’s Cove.

The Province of Nova Scotia is interested in improving the visitor offering and experience within the context of Peggy’s Cove as a living and working coastal village, with its authentic cultural and natural landscapes and sensitive ecological zones. While Peggy’s Cove has long been recognized as one of Nova Scotia’s most iconic tourism destinations (with around 500,000 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 Peggy’s Cove experience for both visitors and residents.

Develop Nova Scotia, together with a planning consultant, will develop the Comprehensive Master Plan in consultation with area residents and community stakeholders. Preliminary project planning is underway, with consultation with community residents and stakeholders expected to begin in February 2019.

Design Week at Peggy’s Cove

Develop Nova Scotia and the Peggy’s Cove project team will be working out of the Peggy’s Cove Visitor Information Centre from February 25 to March 1. Hours will generally be 10am to 4pm. Each day, the team will focus on a specific theme (see schedule below) and have specialists on site to help tackle the issues.
