Stratford City Council approves stacked townhouse development on Ontario Street

A controversial residential development will be moving forward in Stratford.

At their regular meeting on Monday, Stratford City Council voted 7 to 4 to approve a proposal from Chancery Developments that will 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 buildings will be made up of a total of thirty units.

Over a dozen residents spoke out against the development at the meeting with many pointing to heritage, environmental, and density as to the reasons why.

However, that was countered by councilors including Jo-Dee Burbach and Kathy Vassilakos who both said the project was needed as young people need to be able to enter the housing market at an affordable rate.

Council also voted to have the project’s site plan presented at a future meeting.
