No pro­vi­sions in town for communal hous­ing

Journal Pioneer - - PRINCE COUNTY - BY ERIC MC­CARTHY

Al­ber­ton Town Coun­cil has de­cided noth­ing has changed that would cause them to re­con­sider a communal hous­ing per­mit ap­pli­ca­tion. Town Coun­cil re­jected a re­quest last year from Westech Agri­cul­ture for per­mis­sion to set up communal hous­ing for farm work­ers on the ba­sis that it does not have a zon­ing by­law to cover that type of hous­ing. Westech reap­plied and coun­cil took a quick look at the re­quest dur­ing its May meet­ing be­fore de­cid­ing the re­jec­tion still stands. There would have to be a new by­law es­tab­lished be­fore coun­cil could re­con­sider, Mayor Michael Mur­phy com­mented.
