Construction of a veterinary hospital and kennel has been approved for the Five Points area south of Kennett Square by the Kennett Township Zoning Hearing Board.
Caroline Hughes Strange, a veterinarian and a resident of Kennett Square, wants to build the hospital and kennel for her own practice on a 5.8-acre rolling tract in an agriculturally zoned area. Strange said she plans to offer spaces for the boarding of small pets at the kennel.
The tract is bordered by Old Kennett Pike and Cold Springs Road in the Clifton Estates development. The development contains 11 other five-acre lots, some of which have homes. Several homes are also located across Old Kennett Pike from the tract.
