The Stephenville town council gave the approval at their regular general meeting on Thursday, noting this permission is subject to the submission of a detailed concept plan, the applicant entering into a subdivision agreement with the town of Stephenville and compliance with all town regulations.

Developer denied permit for apartment building

Chris Gallant was denied outline planning permission on Thursday for the construction of a 10-unit apartment building on West Street in Stephenville.

Acting on a recommendation of the planning and traffic committee, members of the Stephenville town council denied the permit “as the land on which the proposed development would be located has inadequate frontage.”

Coun. Justin House declared himself in a conflict of interest on the issue and did not vote on it as he said he had assisted the developer with his proposal.
