Build Nova Scotia has been working with the community of Peggy’s Cove to create a comprehensive master planning and design process for the community.

Work underway in the community focuses on pedestrian safety, traffic management, coastal protection, community sustainability, and resident and visitor experience. This includes:

  • Road Raising
