Wilton Planning and Lyndeborough Zoning boards news on variances and tree cutting

Variances approved

WILTON – On May 13, the Wilton Zoning Board of Adjustment approved one request for a variances, and one special exception.

Roni A. Conlon has received permission to construct a garage on Burns Hill Road, which will be closer to the front lot line than allowed by the ordinance.

The special exception allows for the construction so a variance was not needed from resulting set back requirements.

The Dorothy M. Cleaves Trust (Ann Lorden, trustee) has been granted a variance for a lot line adjustment between two lots of Burns Hill Road. The variance allows the current houses to be located on separate lots, but access to the house on Lot J-139 must be by way of an easement over the existing driveway on lot J-134 and not via the School Road.

The selectmen, any party to the action, or any person directly affected by these rulings may request a rehearing in writing before June 12, and must fully state all grounds on which the rehearing is requested.

Tree cutting on scenic roads approved

LYNDEBOROUGH – At the regular meeting on May 15, the Lyndeborough Planning Board approved the cutting of trees which pose a danger, and the trimming of branches which could affect light wires, as proposed by Public Service of New Hampshire.

Most of the trees to be removed are dead or dying. Roads on which work will be done include Brackett’s Cross Road, Crooked S, Curtis Brook, Dutton, Gulf, Locust Lane, New Road, Old Temple and Salisbury roads.

Trees to be removed have been marked with orange ribbons and all landowners have been notified. Any questions should be directed to PSNH.

In other business, the board heard a preliminary proposal for dividing one five-acre lot from the Swartz property on Winn Road. The conservation easement on 600 acres of the property allows for one such lot to subdivided.

The lot is located in the Rural Lands I zone.
