SHIRLEY — Engineer George Connors, representing the estate of Patricia McCarthy, has proposed creating two reduced-frontage hammerhead lots on Holden Road around an existing home.

Connors told the Planning Board at its Nov. 1 meeting that he’s already been working with the Conservation Commission on the site, which is surrounded by town-owned land.

The lots have sufficient acreage to be allowed as reduced-frontage lots on a common driveway, members said.

The property has a lot of constraints, said conservation administrator Anne Gagnon. Using a shared driveway for access would allow them to protect a portion of the 45-acre lot, he said.

The two things the applicant needs to comply with are Conservation Commission and driveway approval, said Planner John Rounds.

“If you can get past those two, this isn’t a hurdle, this is a cake walk,” he said.

The board recommended the applicant contact Department of Public Works Director Joseph Lynch for input on driveway approval. — Richard Breyer
