MUNICIPALITY OF THE DISTRICT OF LUNENBURG, NOVA SCOTIA – The Municipality of the District of Lunenburg (MODL) has launched an interactive property zoning map to help current and future property owners better understand current zoning regulations.
While the majority of MODL is currently unzoned, MODL does have eight planning areas: Hemford Forest, Princes Inlet, Oakland, Blockhouse, Riverport & District, Hebbville, Osprey Village and Lunenburg Municipal Industrial Area.
Using the new interactive map, users can search by address or by unique property identifiers such as Parcel Identification Number (PID) or Assessment Account Number (AAN). Once they have selected the property, a pop-up window will show the zoning name and label, as well as a direct link to the section of the Land Use Bylaw that is applicable to the zone.
“This user-friendly tool provides zoning and planning-related information for landowners, property buyers, realtors and others seeking property information with just a few clicks,” says Mayor Carolyn Bolivar-Getson. “We are always seeking to make information more accessible to the public, and believe this step is an important one, especially as we move towards municipal-wide planning as part of our MODL2040 project.”
