Planning committee OKs Potter’s Key subdivision

A controversial subdivision proposal for Stittsville passed the planning committee hurdle on Tuesday.

– A temporary construction access road will link directly to Hazeldean Road, preventing any heavy duty vehicles from cutting through the existing neighbourhood.   – Only single-detached dwellings will be permitted to back onto existing single-family homes.

The plan still does not include a direct route to Hazeldean Road, which is an arterial route. But city staff say that once an adjacent southern parcel of land is developed, it will include a road that connects both properties to Hazeldean.

The next step is for council to vote on the plan.
