Plan for 56 single-family homes in Portsmouth, NH gains key approval

PORTSMOUTH — A 56-unit single-family home development proposed for land off Peverly Hill Road received a key city approval this week.

The city’s Site Review Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) recommended the project at 83 Peverly Hill Road be granted a Conditional Use Permit (CUP) for the Open Space Planned Unit Development and site plan approval.

The Planning Board still has to grant final approval for the project to be built.

The project, which developers Green & Company are calling Parson Woods Condominiums, will be built on a 110-acre site off Peverly Hill Road near Calvary Cemetery, developers have said previously.

In addition to the 56 single-family homes, the development is planned to feature two pocket parks and a pedestrian/bike path that would be open to the public and connect to the Boston and Maine rail trail.

The 56 homes are proposed to be located on about one-third of the roughly 110-acre site. The remainder of the property is planned to be set aside as a conservation easement, according to Corey Colwell, a vice president at TF Moran who represented the developers at this week’s TAC meeting.
