New Subdivision Approved for the North Shore of Pittock

A new subdivision located in the North Shore of Pittock in Woodstock will have roughly 500 new homes and include a space to possibly build a new public school for elementary students.

WOODSTOCK - Woodstock City Council has approved a new subdivision for the North Shore of Pittock. 

Mayor Trevor Birtch says this next phase of subdivision would include roughly 500 units.

"This is the next phase of approval for the next phase of subdivision on the North Shore of Pittock, for the Kingsman Group. Of course many of those homes have been pre-sold and this would be an area with a mixture of detached houses, semi's town houses, apartments and even a zone set aside for a school board to build a new school to service all of the north side of Woodstock."

Birtch says this was unamiously approved by the City of Woodstock council and will be over to the County Council for official plan amendments and approvals there. Birtch says their is clearly a need for another school in the Friendly City and the school would be built after the homes.

"So the land would be set aside for the school board and their future needs and we will see as the school board for their future needs and we will see as the School Board does a needs anaylist here in the Woodstock. Currently children in the North Shore of Pittock that are in the English Public School Board, they are bussed to Hickson at this point in time, so their is clearly a need for a school in the area."
