Court of Common Pleas Judge Mark Tunnell upheld a decision by Westtown Township to deny Toll Brothers a conditional use application to build homes on Crebilly Farm, writes Bill Rettew for the Daily Local News.

Toll Brothers has applied with the township board of supervisors to construct a 319-home subdivision at the 322-acre property. However, residents packed auditoriums over two years of public meetings to create formidable opposition to the plans.

“Massive public outcry has made a difference in this much bigger picture,” said Mindy Rhodes of Crebilly Farm Friends. “Perhaps just maybe, all parties involved will come to a more reasonable compromise. I will continue to remain cautiously optimistic.”

The property is owned by the Robinson family, with Toll Brothers being the equity owner.

In the end, Judge Tunnell denied the developer’s request on four grounds. These included the failure to include a collector road, the lack of a plan to mitigate traffic impacts, a failure to show alternate access, and failure to account for the conservation design standards.

Toll Brothers still has the option to appeal the judge’s decision.
