Twelve new affordable housing units are a step closer to being built along County Road 21.

Dysart et al council gave its blessing to a site plan agreement with the Kawartha Lakes, Haliburton Housing Corporation.

The townhome style buildings would be built by the Whispering Pines Development.

The housing corporation was asked to resubmit a site plan which added eight more parking spaces, as well as having those spaces closer to the buildings.

K.L.H. Housing hopes to start construction in the spring.
