The future of a controversial residential development could soon be decided.
The proposal, by developer Chancery Developments, would see two 3.5 storey stacked townhouse buildings built on Ontario Street close to downtown and at the site of the former Golden Bamboo restaurant.
The City of Stratford’s Planning and Heritage Committee voted to approve the proposal at a meeting last month where over a dozen people spoke out against it.
The residents voiced concerns including the development being too big for where it will be located, and environmental, noise, and pollution.
However, the project passed in a 7-4 vote with Councillor Danielle Ingram one of those in support and saying that young people need the ability to enter the housing market and that the city needs to make sure that we aren’t stuck in time.
A final vote on the project will take place at the regular council meeting Monday afternoon which gets underway at 3 o’clock.
