Update on Latest Markdale Subdivision
Markdale Subdivision Proposal Heads To County For Approval
Grey Highlands is taking the next step for a Markdale subdivision proposal by requesting Grey County council approval.
Council approved at its meeting on Wednesday to send the proposal to the county level.
This is the latest after Grey Highlands council approved the planning application for the housing development in May.
“Grey County still requires an initial decision from the lower-tier municipality with respect to subdivision approvals prior to making a county-level decision out of respect for the lower-tier council and for practical good-planning reasons,” says a staff report. “The Municipality of Grey Highlands does have the right to appeal a decision of the County of Grey if the municipality does not agree with some aspect of the decision.”
The proposed subdivision would create 471 new lots on vacant lands at the north end of Markdale on the east side of Highway 10, consisting of 304 new single detached dwellings and 167 townhouse dwellings. Additionally, it also includes the creation of new roads, parks, and stormwater management facilities.
