Coun­cil fi­nal­izes new Welles­ley sub­di­vi­sion

The Woolwich Observer - - NEWS -

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.
