Upcoming Hearings:

            On Thursday, November 2, 2017, at 7:00 P.M., at the Kennett Township Building, 801 Burrows Run Road, Chadds Ford, PA 19317, the Kennett Township Zoning Hearing Board will conduct a public hearing and thereafter consider and render a decision on the appeal from the actions of the Kennett Township Zoning Officer filed by Richard Stat and Randall F. Bishop, 731 and 725 Norway Road, Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania.  In particular, the Appellants filed this appeal from the determination of the Kennett Township Zoning Officer that the proposal of the Chester Water Authority to develop its property located at 745 Norway Road, Kennett Township is permitted without the need for a special exception or other relief regarding the use because the proposal was a minor public utility facility which had previously been approved in 1975.  Further, it is alleged by the Appellants that the proposed development and use must be subject to a conditional use approval of the Board of Supervisors.  If any person who wishes to attend the hearing has a disability and/or requires an auxiliary aid, service or other accommodation to observe or participate in the proceedings, he or she should contact the Township Building at 610-388-1300, to discuss how those needs may be accommodated.
