Toll Bros Trash Original Plan for 41 "Luxury" Homes That Included a "Community Septic Field." Submits a New Plan with 45 Homes and Connection to Public Sewer | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

[At the February 12, 2020 meeting, Newtown Township] supervisors … granted Toll Brothers’ request to again reschedule a public hearing on its condition-use application to build 41 high-end luxury homes on 152 acres off of Route 413 and Twinning Bridge Road.

 

This is the third time that the mandated hearing has been rescheduled. It is now be postponed until the Feb. 26 supervisors’ meeting. Read “Supervisors' Review Of Toll Brothers Proposal Pushed Back, Again!”; http://sco.lt/5ppv3A]

 

[The planning commission heard a presentation by Toll Bros representative at its Feb. 18, 2020, meeting. Listen to an audio recording of that presentation here.]

 

The property, which is zoned Conservation Management (CM), borders Durham Road to the east, Twinning Bridge Road to the north, Devonshire Meadows to the west and the Newtown Township Municipal Complex to the south.

 

In October, Toll had amended its application, as well as downsized the number of proposed homes for the property. A new plan was submitted to the township which now calls for 45 single-family luxury homes to be built on the parcel.

 

Under the new application, two access roads would instead be located on Twinning Bridge Road.

 

The downsized plan which had originally called for an on-site wastewater treatment facility has been abandoned. The development would instead be connected to the township’s public sewer line.

 

[A hearing on this application is scheduled for the February 26, 2020, Newtown Board of Supervisors meeting, which will be held beginning at 7 PM at 100 Municipal Drive, Newtown.}
