Manchester gravel pit may become housing development

Print More

An unused gravel pit in Manchester could become the site of 23 expensive homes. The Partridge Hill company has won a permit that will allow it to subdivide a 46-acre gravel pit. Homes in the development would cost between $650,000 and $700,000.

Some neighbors argued unsuccessfully that the project would harm an adjoining nature sanctuary. The District 8 Environmental Commission ruled the project would not affect the town’s ability to handle growth because the homes are so expensive it’s unlikely they will attract families with school children.
