  • The Wellington Advertiser - Council approves zoning bylaw for new Charleston Homes subdivision
    the older trees on the site Several residents have in the past expressed concern about the density of the proposed development but Hermsen presented a comparison chart illustrating 6 6 units per acre is not that out of synch with what has happened elsewhere in the community He recommended council approve the zoning bylaw to remove the holding symbol on the property but several residents said they would like their concerns addressed before that happens One woman said she is concerned the development s townhouses could attract ghetto type people Andrew Mulder Charleston s manager of land development and planning said even the townhouses in the development are very high end and likely won t attract those on lower incomes or those wanting to purchase rental properties Several residents expressed concern about the potential loss of trees and wondered why they could not be included in the covenant protecting the stone walls on the property Hermsen at first said that was a possibility but then hinted it may be difficult to include trees in the agreement You re dealing with a living situation that s constantly changing and evolving he said However he explained that before the land is developed a professional arborist would take a registry of all the trees on the property and decide which can be saved Between that and individual landscape plans on each property Hermsen said it is likely the overall greening of the property will be improved The concerns about overcrowding at Rockwood Centennial Public School are legitimate White told the crowd but ultimately that is a school board issue Mulder added his company s development will result in development charges intended to provide additional space at the school Plus the Charleston subdivision is not really marketing to families but more lock and leave purchasers without young children Councillor Doug Breen said he likes the idea of possibly including tree protection in the agreement and White said if the township can make it work it would be willing to do so Breen also noted he is still very concerned about parking in the development and even more worried about the lack of traffic lights in the area I m always hesitant to take the first step when we haven t solved the biggest problems Breen said The two intersections along Harris Street at Highway 7 and at the new access road for the proposed subdivision do not meet provincial warrants for traffic lights but Breen said that means there is something wrong with the warrant process We need a traffic light somewhere along there he said White agreed adding traffic lights are needed in the area even without the new subdivision proposed by Charleston Homes We should just go out and lay on the road until we get it he said These traffic patterns are horrific The mayor doubted much could be solved with a provincial election on the way but said We won t give up on this light Breen asked if refusal
