HARRISBURG (November 14, 2017) – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced that $125,000 in state funding has been approved for open space preservation in southern Chester County.

The funding, which was approved today by the Commonwealth Finance Authority, will go to the Land Conservancy of Southern Chester County for the acquisition of more than 23 acres on either side of North Creek Road in London Britain.

The two parcels of land, formerly owned by David Coye, are fully wooded and one of them is bisected by the White Clay Creek. The conservancy will preserve the land, which has existing trails, for possible future inclusion in the adjacent White Clay Creek Preserve.

“This is another great example of the Land Conservancy of Southern Chester County working with the support of state investments to preserve land that would otherwise have been placed in the open market and developed,” Dinniman said. “Together, we’ve succeeded in saving this key acreage from development with the potential of eventually linking it to other preserved open spaces.”

Funding for the project comes from Act 13 of 2012, supported by annual impact fees on natural gas drilling wells in the Marcellus Shale formation.
