I don’t think so.

1011 Elgin Street, dwarfing its Lilliput bungalow neighbours, was cleared as an appropriate development by Town’s ineffective Director of Planning, Rick Nethery, when everyone else with a pair of eyes knew it was grotesquely out of place.  

As construction progressed and the scale of the development became clear, councillors found they were powerless to act. Nethery, their top planning adviser, who warned about inappropriate development in stable residential areas way back in 2012 had done nothing in the intervening years to address the issue.

And the result? Elgin Street with its modest bungalows is now home to the “biggest house in Newmarket” overshadowing its neighbours.

It’s yours for only $4 million.

The Town is now taking steps to regulate Monster Homes in residential neighbourhoods. And the Director of Planning, Rick Nethery, is in charge of the process.

And this is how Newmarket Today covered the story.
