Synopsis:  “The plaintiff, Don Perry, appeals from a judgment of the Land Court affirming the decision of the zoning board of appeals (board) of the town of Hull (town), allowing the defendants, Anne Veilleux and Charles Williams (owners), to build a house on property (locus) abutting Perry’s property.  As the board reasonably construed the town’s zoning bylaw (bylaw) to distinguish between how frontage on a public street and frontage on a private way is calculated, we conclude that the owners have sufficient frontage to build the house.  Further concluding that Perry’s other arguments lack merit, we affirm.”  Congratulations to Hull Town Counsel Jim Lampke for this win!
