City Approves Huge Development Near Southlands

It's another step forward for Dannyland. The city has approved development above the 190-metre contour with a view towards future growth. Former Premier Danny Williams is behind a huge residential and commercial project in the area near Southlands that will rival the size of Gander. Council approved amendments to the Municipal Plan and Development Regulations to allow building in the higher elevations. Development west of Southlands and both sides of Kenmount Road near the Mount Pearl city limits will require significant improvement to infrastructure. There are no applications for development in those areas currently before council.

Councillor Tom Hann says he is pleased that the plan is finally coming to fruition. Hann calls it an important step toward the future. He says it also gives council the opportunity to plan a community by strategically putting residents and neighbourhoods in the forefront.
This is a step forward, hopefully the kenmount hill area is developed in a smart way, it has potential to keep the growth in the middle of the metro area instead of stretching out as much.
