Oakwood at Madison Corp. v. Mayor & Council of Madison Township

Citation: 2 ELR 20670
No. Nos. A-2327-69, -2106-69, (N.J. Super. Ct. App. Div., 03/09/1971) Aff'd per curiam

Madison Township enacted an orinance forbidding approvals of any subdivision plans until zoning ordinances were revised in accordance with a comprehensive plan. A later, clarifying ordinance permitted "present owners of land . . . to build residences on their property for their own occupancy." The plaintiffs, owners of land which they proposed to subdivide into lots upon which buyers could construct their own homes, sought to compel classification of their property as a major subdivision. The court held that the court below was correct in denying the plaintiffs' motion for partial summary judgment. [For the opinion below, see 2 ELR 20668; for a related case, see 2 ELR 20670]
