UPDATE (clarifies SWN statement) The 1885-built Victorian home known as the Kemper-Gunn House at 35 Church Lane got a green light from the Planning and Zoning Commission (P&Z) tonight to be relocated to nearby space in the town-owned Baldwin parking lot on Elm Street.
The P&Z unanimously approved Text Amendment 669 designed to facilitate the relocation of historic buildings by easing restrictions in a Business Center District/Historic (BCD/H) zone on setbacks, floor area ration (FAR), buffer areas, landscaping and alike.
According to Planning & Zoning Director Laurence Bradley, the text amendment becomes effective March 20.
The house is being moved to make way for the Bedford Square development replacing the Westport Weston Family Y on Church Lane. The text amendment had been submitted DC Kemper-Gunn LLC, a division of Bedford Square Associates.
