Controversial Housing Development Moves Ahead

A plan to build a new neighbourhood in Rothesay getting some pushback.

Some residents voicing concerns about traffic, safety and property values if the Dobbin Street housing development goes ahead at a public hearing.

The development would be made up of two new apartment buildings and 15 new townhouses. A new road and sidewalk would also be built.

Council giving the project preliminary approval, and Mayor Bill Bishop tells CHSJ News before they give the official go-ahead, the town will be reviewing the development deal in detail.

Bishop tells us he thinks the development would make a good addition to Rothesay not only for taxation reasons but for accommodating those who want to live in the town but can't afford a home.
