Commonwealth Court Rules In Favor Of Private Lawsuits To Enforce Local Land Development Ordinances

Commonwealth Court Tuesday issued a decision involving a Blair County case where one landowner sought to enforce a local land development ordinance on another.  
The Court ruled under the Municipalities Planning Code there is a private cause of legal action to “enforce an alleged violation of any ordinance enacted under the MPC.”

This issue is important because it could impact lawsuits filed by the Delaware Riverkeeper and six Middletown, Delaware County residents seeking to enforce local zoning ordinances against Sunoco’s Mariner East 2 Pipeline.
Of course, it could apply to any other land development issue as well.
