The work on the Council-led residential subdivision off Pembroke Road is making steady progress after construction commenced in February 2019. 

Chief Executive Sven Hanne says, “Due to the contractors having well-resourced the project and the fine weather, great progress has been made. The roadways are now defined and the entry road has metal on it.”

Mayor Neil Volzke says, “I am pleased with the progress made to date and I’m looking forward to putting the for sale sign up.”

Council adopted the four new street names Midsummer Avenue, Bianca Crescent, Othello Place, and Macbeth Place at its Ordinary Council meeting on Tuesday 12 March 2019. The four names were a result of the Name Thy Street competition held in November 2018 where the community were asked to suggest names that had an affiliation to Shakespeare. Council received 127 entries. The winners of the competition are: Heather Hodges (Bianca), Thelma & Chrissie Carson (Macbeth), Rachel Payne (Midsummer), and Aylssa Smith (Othello).

Councillor Gloria Webby who led the Name Thy Street competition said, “While a number of people had suggested some of the winning names these people won because of the reason they gave. We had a fabulous response and we thank everyone that put in a suggestion.”

Along standing tradition, Stratford’s streets have been named after the works of Shakespeare since 1878. Currently with 66 roads in the district named accordingly.

It is anticipated sections will go on sale mid-year however expressions of interest are now being taken by Council’s appointed marketing agent McDonald’s Real Estate Stratford.
