SOUTH STORMONT, Ontario – On January 12, 2022, the Township of South Stormont received a report on the John Chase subdivision project in Long Sault, which was previously received by the United Counties in July 2021.
The applicants (Newell and Grant Brown Ltd.) intend to develop a residential development on approximately 9.83 hectares along the north side of Country Road 36, east of the Chase Meadows development. The proposed development will consist of 74 residential lots that will accommodate 65 single family homes and 9 semi-detached homes and a 1.43 hectare block that will accommodate low-rise multi-residential quadruplexes. The residential development will be serviced by municipal water and sewer.
The Township of South Stormont was unanimously in favor of receiving the report.
”I think it’s a great idea, I’m very happy to hear that. I’ve been trying to get more and more people to have diverse housing… It’s not just 3 bedroom, 1800 square foot homes. We need some diversity, and I think that fits the bill,” Deputy Mayor David Smith said.
Subdivision development costs are to be borne solely by Newell and Grant Brown Ltd. The Township does not anticipate any unreasonable increase in the cost of providing municipal services as a result of the development of the subject lands.
The preliminary detailed design is expected to be received by mid-January 2022 and will be evaluated.
