Two new subdivisions in Bradford West Gwillimbury have been cleared to break ground.
Council voted earlier this week to approve a pre-serving agreement with developer Bond Head North to “commence the underground works and base road construction” for a 340-home subdivision, according to a town staff report.
As well, council approved a separate pre-servicing agreement to allow Cachet Estate Homes to start work on its 83-townhome subdivision in the area of Line 6 and Simcoe Road.
The Bond Head development is on a 54-hectare property on the north side of County Road 88 that straddles County Road 27.
According to the draft agreement, the land’s owner must undertake all construction in a manner that does not “unreasonably interfere with adjoining lands or vehicular and pedestrian traffic on adjacent streets.”
As well, they must control all dust, mud and debris resulting from construction, and reimburse the town for any damage to municipal services, facilities or works, read the document.
The much-debated development on Line 6 and Simcoe Road has taken more than two years to get to this point.
A draft plan for the subdivision was approved last spring after 18 months of negotiations, with concerns ranging from street access, parking, and the effect on streetscape and adjacent homes on Simcoe Road.
Both developers will now complete requirements to enter into full subdivision agreements and register their plans with the town.
