The plaintiff, wishing to subdivide its land fronting on Long Island Sound, submitted its plan to the town planning and zoning board whose approval was required by ordinance before land could be subdivided and sold. The board rejected plaintiff's plan as not in conformance with a preliminary town plan, adopted in 1936 pursuant to a state statute, providing for the prospective construction of a road along the shore of the sound. The plaintiff appealed to the board of zoning appeals, which affirmed the decision of the town planning and zoning board. On appeal to the Supreme Court of Errors of Connecticut, held, reversed. A preliminary town plan, adopted without notice to affected property owners and without opportunity for them to be heard, cannot curtail the rights of such owners or limit them in the use of their land. Lordship Park Assn. v. Board of Zoning Appeals of Town of Stratford, (Conn. 1950) 75 A. (2d) 379.
