The council approved plans for an upscale eight-home subdivision, a project that had been at the center of a debate about the town's affordable housing policy in October.

Bradley Green subdivision will be built with two of the eight houses going no larger than 1,350 square feet. The developer agreed also to build sewer lines much lower than normal to allow a Habitat for Humanity project planned for an adjacent parcel to hook onto it.

That would save Habitat about $200,000, officials said, because it would prevent the nonprofit from having to install a pump station.
