At the Council meeting on 22 July, an update on developments currently with the planning department was given by Councillor Aaron Burchat (on behalf of Planning coordinator Nicole Beatty who was absent). Aaron said there were 25 projects and listed 12 of them. They included projects that had recently come before council plus some others. There is a wide range planned – some are low cost and affordable while others are “high end”. It’s clear a good number of major developers are interested in the Cobourg market – perhaps encouraged by the recent rise in house prices here. These include Stalwood, New Amherst, Mason Homes, Rondeau, LeBlanc Homes, Balder Corporation and Rollins Investments. Some have been in various stages for several years but the total number of units is well over 2000 so when built, Cobourg will have a population well over 20,000.
One major project has moved out of planning and is now being built – the TVM Condos on the Legion property on Hibernia are sold out and owners expect to move in by the end of 2019.
