Preserve the Torbay Coastline

Conservation V Its up to YOU!


The coastline side of the historic Father Troy Trail should continue as Conservation Zone. The land currently under threat is on the north side of Torbay Bight, at the end of Moore's Valley Road and the Battery Road, and is locally known as "Dominion Hill". It has been formally protected by the town of Torbay since its first Municipal Plan in 1978.

We are firmly against any rezoning of lands next to the Father Troy Trail from "Conservation" to "Residential." We believe such re-zoning will ultimately lead to the destruction of the irreplaceable character of this trail, the area, and its unimpeded panoramic view, which has been enjoyed for hundreds of years.

Letters have been sent to the Torbay Town Council from a number of concerned parties reminding Torbays Town Council of the importance of maintaining Conservation zones, citing Torbays own 2007-2017 Municipal Plan.

h Plan-Tech Environment
h Torbay Environment and Trails Committee
h Torbay Heritage Committee/Torbay Museum
h East Coast Trail Association
h Department of Municipal Affairs

Maintain the Conservation zone, and protect our coastline from development.

    The good of the many outweigh the good for the few. This coastline is as it should be. Do we need to look like St. John's Harbour before the pro-development forces in Torbay are happy with the progress of Torbay? This is not democratic representation, it'

    I have written to Torbay Town council about this subject about a year ago. Torbay needs to stand behind its commitments to conservation, particularly in the areas surrounding Torbay bight. The "Dominion Hill" area should be kept as undeveloped land for th
