A heated debate took place at Wasaga Beach council regarding a proposed development by Aqua Luxury Beach Residences.
The development is calls for one building containing seven townhouses and one semi-detached dwelling located at Eastdale Drive and River Road East.
Many residents of the neighbouring homes turned out to voice their displeasure with the development -- citing decreased property values, awkward setbacks and yard sizes, traffic, and parking concerns.
Things turned testy when the developer threatened to build a large well-lit shopping plaza instead of townhouses, prompting an apology from the developer during question period.
The plan now moves to the development committee.
