Bayberry estates is a plan to build up to 250 housing units in Pepperell on 60 acres of land between Bayberry and Ashley streets.
The project is setting aside 25% of the units for low income. This allows the project to use Chapter 40B rules to bypass local zoning to implement this high density project.
The implications of such a significant project in this remote

area of Pepperell are numerous.
This project will affect everyone who lives in Pepperell!!!
This web site is for your use to become aware of the project and to find out how you can join concerned citizens in responding to this proposal.
