The Public Hearing session is now closed - no further public input will be considered. It is anticipated that the 3rd Reading will come before Council in late February.
The July 24, 2018 Council Meeting voted to approve the Benedick Road development for 2nd Reading and to set up a Public Hearing for this development. In total, the plan called for the initial building of 38 single dwelling houses and an additional 13 single dwelling houses if the builder can demonstrate that it is safe to build on the land slippage area. Current plans assume that the development will be accessed through Benedick Road albeit there will likely be a second entrance through Casa Palmero (see Casa Palmero Development for more info)
