    At the October 24, 2011 Tolland, CT Town Zoning Meeting, they will be discussing the revision of the zoning regulation to allow up to 6 chickens (No Roosters!) as an "as-of-right" use to residential lots as small as 0.5 acres (Currently the regulation requires that one must own a minimum of 1.25 acres of land).

    "As of right use" Those uses that are automatically allowed by the zoning code. They are allowed "as a matter of right."

    Well, I don't know what the ordinance was before as far as how many, but I'm glad to see that they are changing the amount of land!

    The current regs are 5 chickens on 1.25 acres so they are just changing the allowed land. [​IMG][​IMG]
