Does anyone know if I need a special permit in Newton, MA to convert a duplex into a single family? I would usually keep a duplex over converting but this is a different case.
Thanks in advance!
Per Newton zoning by laws you should be just fine in any residential zone in the city. See attached table of uses.
P = allowed by right.
Thanks for the super quick response Todd! I tried to call the city a couple of time but they don't take calls (they say so in the recording...)
how is this project going are you guys going to be able to convert into a duplex. I know Newton can be challenging.
@Ariel Lisogorsky the zoning laws on the city website are helpful. I would reach out to an attorney for specific zoning laws. Good luck!
That's a reasonable reconversion and likely would reduce density in the area so the city would be huge proponents of this move. I dont think you would have a hard time executing on this plan.
Hi, we've decided to move on from that property, but the answers here are very helpful for future analysis.
