Dawn will be facilitating the Municipal Planning Strategy review process during the upcoming year and revising the Strategy. A review will ensure that our polices are current and relevant as well as provide an opportunity to incorporate important directions as set out in documents such as the Town of Lunenburg Strategic Plan and the Municipal Climate Change Action Plan. The Municipal Planning Strategy is Council’s principal policy document for land use planning. It is written with participation from the community. It sets out our long term vision for the future and speaks to a variety of planning and development issues.

Please help us keep Town streets free of ice and snow by ensuring your vehicle is parked off-street during Winter storms and snow removal operations by the Public Works Department. We can do the job faster and better if your vehicles are not left on the street during this time. With your help we can make pedestrian and vehicle safety a priority by finding alternate parking locations during snow clearing and salting operations.
In the Town of Lunenburg, the RCMP enforce the Nova Scotia Motor Vehicle Act which: 1.) prohibits parking or leaving a motor vehicle, whether attended or unattended, on any street that might interfere with or obstruct snow removal, or winter maintenance; 2.) authorizes a Police Officer to have a motor vehicle moved or towed to some other place if it is interfering with or obstructing snow removal or winter maintenance; and 3.) provides that the cost of moving or towing the motor vehicle may be recovered from the owner.
The Town of Lunenburg operates several parking lots where overnight (5:00 p.m. – 8:00 a.m.) parking is permitted for a fee ($33.10/month HST included). Parking passes may be purchased at the Lunenburg Town Hall, 119 Cumberland Street (902-634-4410).
The cooperation of all drivers is appreciated. For more information, please contact the RCMP Lunenburg Office at 902-634-8674 or Public Works Department at 902-634-8992.
