Development up 17 per cent since 2015 in Carleton Place

Carleton Place council received information about the Planning Activity End of Year 2016 Report at the Jan. 10, 2016 meeting – the first meeting after the holiday break.

The approved report, which deals with development services and planning matters in the Town of Carleton Place, highlighted successful developments in 2016 such as the signing of the Jackson Ridge subdivision and Brigil subdivision agreements.

In 2016, there was a 17 per cent increase in pre-consultations and development permits issued than in 2015.

“Several years in a row we’ve seen an increase so I think things are looking quite good,” said Councillor Sean Redmond, chair of the planning and protection committee responsible for the report. “It shows we’re steadily growing – it’s a good thing.”

The planning department will continue to run effectively and efficiently in 2017, Redmond said.

    I believe the Town of CP should include more emphasis on creating green spaces within developments and throughout the town centre. For example with the creation of small parks.
    There has been some success already, such as The Farmer’s Market and the small seating area near the Roy Brownbuiding.
    It would be great to see it increased in the town centre, but also within housing developments, which tend to be high density.
    I would love to see work done to improve the appearance of the entrance to CP from Moore Street to the Lake Avenue crossing.
