Council finalizes new Wellesley subdivision
There was little discussion needed Tuesday evening, as Wellesley councillors gave approval for an agreement between the township and developer Lotco II Ltd. for a 32-unit subdivision to be built at the corner of Ferris Drive and Greenwood Hill Road.
The plan for the development, consisting of single-detached homes and a new roadway, was formerly approved by council in February of this year.
Signing a subdivision agreement is the next step in the process before construction on the homes can begin, and lots can eventually be sold by the developer. The homes, being built on an approximately 4.8-acre plot, are accessible via a new road, Galena Street, which was constructed as part of the project. The street exits onto both Ferris Drive and Greenwood Hill Road.
As part of the agreement, however, construction vehicles will only be able to enter onto Galena Street via Greenwood Hill Road.
The plan for the subdivision received substantial changes over the years following feedback at public meetings. Initially, the developer had asked to build a mix of three single-detached homes on the property, 32 semi-detached, and a further 13 townhouses, but was denied the denser housing plan.
