A new development is being organized in the Peony Farm area in the RM of Portage la Prairie.

Reeve Kam Blight says a planned subdivision requires a separation of land into nine different lots.

“Each individual lot took on some of the ownership of the drain that goes through there on the north side,” says Blight. “Council was just wanting to make sure that we had proper access to that. So, we just wanted to make sure that going forward, and when we enter into a development agreement, we'll be able to negotiate those terms into the process.”

He adds council will then be able to proceed with the subdivision and is excited to see the new development come to fruition.
