A property owner at Sweetened Water Farm in Edgartown has appealed a recent planning board decision not to allow him to subdivide his property under the Form A (approval not required) process.

Dwight W. Arundale claims the planning board decision contravenes the law. The appeal was filed in Massachusetts Land Court.

No further subdivision will be allowed in the Sweetened Water subdivision in Edgartown for now, the town planning board ruled last week.

At issue before the board was a Form A application from Sweetened Water resident Dwight Arundale to divide his 2.6-acre lot into two parcels. Technically called approval not required, the Form A process allows simple subdivisions on land with adequate road frontage.
