WOOLWICH TWP. – Although the preliminary site plan approval was denied for the 850,000 square foot warehouse planned to be built next to the Harker School on Oldmans Creek Road on Nov. 16, the plan is not officially dead. The developer, Oldmans Creek Holdings, LLC, has the right to appeal the denial.
According to Woolwich Township Mayor Craig Frederick, in order for them to do this, the Joint Land Use Board must first document the resolution to confirm the motion and the vote tally for the denial. Once the resolution has been published, the developer has 45 days to appeal the decision.
If appealed, it will go through court procedures to see if the board’s decision is overturned.
If the decision is not appealed, the denial stands and the applicant cannot resubmit a new plan
because the 5A residential zoning is now in place on that location. When the applicant put their original plan in for approval, the ground was zoned for light industry.
