Well, that didn’t last long.
Toll Brothers’ highly controversial development plan of Crebilly Farm was denied by Westtown Township late last year, citing traffic concerns and undoubtedly considering massive opposition from Westtown residents and beyond.
At the time, the township issued a 53-page document with its findings. In the document, they also noted that Crebilly Farm has historic views and connections leading back to the Revolutionary War.
Toll Brothers argues that these historic views are not defined under zoning ordinances, and thus they should be allowed to develop upon them. They accuse the township officials of overstepping their bounds and abusing their discretion.
Furthermore, Toll announced that they are not required to abide by the township’s comprehensive plan.
So far, a court date has not yet been set to hear the Horsham developer’s appeal in person. When scheduled, it will take place at the Chester County Court of Common Pleas.
