The New Community of Bisset
Although originally the intention was to design Bisset as a high-density development, the prevailing market conditions at the time when development began led to downzoning of some undeveloped land which was designated for single-dwelling unit homes. A majority of residential development in Bisset neighbourhood was completed in the 1980s.
The neighbourhood of Bisset derives its name from Judge Athelstan Bisset, Q.C. During the First World War, Judge Bisset served overseas and established his law practice after returning from the war between 1919 and 1952 in Strathcona. He served for 15 years as Alderman and was appointed as the Judge of Family Court in 1952.
