New subdivision planned for south end of Collingwood: Eden Oak

In one of it’s final acts before their term expired, Collingwood’s last council gave approval to a Draft Plan of Subdivision, subject to appeal, of a long proposed development on the south end of town.

The new Eden Oak development is proposing a subdivision of 243 new homes located just east of Hurontario Street at the end of Tracey lane.  This means that, if approved, homes on the south sides of Lockart Rd, Brock Cres and also Dey Drive will have new neighbours to replace the open fields they have enjoyed for years.

At least one councilor wants the current new council to rescind the approval given in December and discussion of that motion has been deferred to March 21st.  I can imagine that this type of an action by the new council would open a huge door for lawsuits and is therefore unlikely to happen.  An appeal has been filed by a neighbouring land owner against the plan and is expected to wind it’s way through the process in the month’s ahead.

UPDATE:  On March 21st, 2011, the new Collingwood Council rescinded the draft plan approval for this project.  Details can be found on the Enterprise Bulletin website – story here.
