A lot of small towns around NS have bad planning, with a lackluster town centre area and then sprawl outside. And then there are some towns like Chester or Lunenburg that are very picky about what they allow to the point where most proposals seem to get cancelled.

Truro and the Kentville/Wolfville area seem to be at a happy medium although they both have their sprawl.
