West Ridge on the Lake retraction

Section: 
Letter

Having spent a considerable amount of time researching the history of the WROTL project, I would like to retract my suggestion last week that council, through intervention in the planning process, is somehow responsible for the final lacklustre subdivision plan.

 

In fact, it appears that council worked hard to influence the developer to submit a plan more in keeping with our community. In the end the developer, working with Mitchinson Planning, has forced the final plan through via an arbitration process related to delays in the approval process.

 

The result is the same though. The final and singularly unimaginative plan has been forced through, replete with its small urban lots more suited to Mississauga than Kincardine.

 

My apologies to the council members who worked to try and influence this development to be more suited to our community.

 

Paul van de Bospoort,

Kincardine
