Work could start soon on Wyoming subdivision


It looks like a Lucan-based developer is getting ready to begin construction in Wyoming.

In 2008, the township approved a plan of subdivision on the east side of the community by developer Ken Dobbins. The plan was to build 112 single-family homes from the railroad tracks on Main to Confederation Street.

The roads dead-end streets of Main, Thames, Ontario, Erie, and Huron would all be opened to extend the roads and a new north-south road – Ketter Way – would be built.

Now developer Mike Radcliffe of Lucan is working on the project. And he’s making some changes.

Radcliffe has asked council to allow a zoning change near Erie Street east of the Royal Canadian Legion and Royal-Leigh Apartments. Radcliffe wants to build two multi-unit residential units, according to Senior Planner Rob Nisbett.

Mayor Lonny Napper says the changes seem to be a good fit in that part of the community. “There is not a high density in the area…and I’m willing to listen to what he has to say,” says Napper.

Radcliffe also wants to make changes to four lots on Main Street. The front of the lot would be smaller and “more affordable,” according to Nesbitt.

The public will get a chance to look at the proposed changes May 26 at a public meeting. Nesbitt says it is possible that if all the necessary approvals are given, the developer could begin construction late this summer or early in the fall.
