The Island Regulatory and Appeals Commission says it won't stop construction of a controversial new home on Charlottetown's Ambrose Street. 

The City of Charlottetown issued the building permit in April. Recently some residents of the area complained the modern-looking home currently under construction doesn't fit with the heritage character of homes nearby.

Ambrose Street is in the Brighton neighbourhood of Charlottetown, one of the oldest areas of the city.

One resident filed an appeal with IRAC asking for a review of the city's decision to issue the permit.

The commission says the request came too late and allowing an appeal now would be unfair to the developer and the city.
