As the recognized voice of the land development industry in Nova Scotia, developers, builders, and others associated with the development industry seek our guidance for support in dealing with issues which affect us all.

"UDI continues to grow as the respected voice of development in Nova Scotia.  We continue to address our concerns with HRM regarding the Noise By-law and permit processing times. We were successful in initiating changes to the Complete Street Guide and bringing about a Preferred Customer Program to expedite subdivision approvals.

 

In anticipation of the pilot project being successful, we have requested that HRM extend this status to other application processes. Our cooperative approach with HRM has been strengthened, as we hosted a session to better understand the new POSSE System and to offer our insights.  We hosted 4 tutorials for our members to discuss Centre Plan and to gain a deeper understanding of its effects on development.  Our strategy to become a ‘trusted partner’ with HRM and the province has been successful and continues to progress."

- Chris Marchand, President of the UDI Nova Scotia Board of Directors
