At the Tuesday, June 24th Leduc County Council meeting Cancom Development presented its proposal to increase the building footprint in the Royal Oaks subdivision. The proposal would increase the size of homes up to 15% without increasing the size of lots, which would remain from everything from Estate to medium and smaller homes. The space between homes would remain the same but the change could affect the distance the house sits between that the front and back of the house lot.

The change would result in an increase on house density increasing the number of residents the subdivision could accommodate.

Several councilors expressed a concerned about how the proposal would affect current house owners who bought their homes under the current subdivision plan. County Mayor Whaley indicated the county has to comply with the CRB regulations on building density as a result third reading was delayed until the county could get answers to their concerns.

As reported earlier, this proposal appears to be the first indication developers are interested in increasing the densities of current subdivisions and logically future proposals.
