Breaking News: Wawa's Request for Zoning Variances Denied!

Breaking News: Wawa's Request for Zoning Variances Denied! | Newtown News of Interest |

After three grueling hearings and one public comment session, the Newtown Zoning Hearing Board (ZHB) denied Wawa's requests for variances to the new E30 Special Exception zoning ordinance.

At its September 20, 2021, meeting, the ZHB voted 4-1 to grant a special exception for the Wawa convenience store/gas station, which the Township did not oppose, but DENIED ALL VARIANCES by a 3-2 vote.


That means that the Wawa can operate at the proposed location on Lower Silver Lake Road and Newtown Bypass, however it will be limited to 6 gas fueling stations (Wawa asked for 8), and there will be no signs other than what is allowed by the E-30 Special Exception ordinance.
