PPM Atlantic Renewable v. Fayette County Zoning Hearing Board (majority)Annotate this Case

This matter involved whether an objector must comply with a county court order to post bond as a condition of appealing to the Commonwealth Court, where the developer was the appellant in the county court.

Accordingly, the Supreme Court reversed the Commonwealth Court’s order and remanded the case for further proceedings.
