STATEMENT REGARDING
THE APPELLATE COURT’S DECISION

40 CIRO ROAD, NORTH BRANFORD 

The Town has been advised that the Appellate Court reversed the decision of the trial court that dismissed the applicant’s land use appeal and is directing the Planning & Zoning Commission to approve the applicant’s application to locate bulk storage of propane at 40 Ciro Road.    At the trial court, the Town successfully persuaded the judge that under a Connecticut Supreme Court decision, even when a proposed development is permitted as of right, a planning & zoning commission has discretion to inquire into specific matters, even if off-site, to make sure that the proposed site plan layout is safe.  In reversing the trial court, the Appellate Court held that the Town was limited to considering only on-site concerns. 

The Town Attorney will be meeting with the Planning & Zoning Commission in Executive Session to review the decision and explore any remaining options.  The deadline to file a petition for certification with the Connecticut Supreme Court is October 25, 2021.  The Town believes that even when something is permitted as of right, a planning & zoning commission should have the ability to balance all concerns, on-site and off-site, to protect the public health, safety and welfare, and to maintain a harmonious balance in land use.
