Supervisors Give Iron Hill Brewery the Go-ahead to Open a Brewpub/Restaurant in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center

Supervisors Give Iron Hill Brewery the Go-ahead to Open a Brewpub/Restaurant in the Village at Newtown Shopping Center | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

The board of supervisors gave conditional use approval for a Wilmington, Del.-based microbrewery and eatery chain to set up shop in the newest under-construction section of the Village at Newtown Shopping Center at Eagle and Durham roads.

However, concerned that the proposed size of the outdoor seating area and recorded music would create excessive noise for nearby residential areas, the supervisors restricted the number of outside seats and prohibited the restaurant from installing any audio speakers in that dining area.

After a public hearing lasting a little more than an hour at the April 10 supervisors’ meeting, the board voted 4-0 to allow Iron Hill Brewery LLC to operate a roughly 7,200 square-foot G-1 manufacturing facility for the brewing of beers, as well as an E-5 zoning exception to run a full-service sit-down indoor and outdoor restaurant.

Voting for the conditional-use approval were: Chairman Phil Calabro, along with Supervisors John Mack, Dennis Fisher and Linda Bobrin. Supervisor Kyle Davis did not attend the meeting.
