Urban chickens plan re-flight

Councillor Jennifer Watts has announced she will soon ask city staff to establish guidelines to permit urban chickens.

Last year, Halifax council declined to intervene as bylaw officers evicted three chickens from Louise Hanavan's north end yard. But the issue is far from dead---councillor Jennifer Watts has announced she will soon ask city staff to establish possible land use guidelines that permit urban chickens. The issue will come before the December 14 Peninsula Council meeting (7pm, at City Hall). The public will not be allowed to speak at that meeting, but if the four peninsula councillors agree to move forward, a public consultation process will begin before chickens are laid out for the full Halifax council, some time next year.
