Centex Homes, LLC v. Township Committee of Mansfield Township et al

In this case, the Court stated that the proper standard of applying a general development plan is that survival of a portion of the plan is dependent on the survival of the whole plan.

This case arose out of Centex Homes abandonment of its approved plan to develop one of three tracts of land. In turn, the Township Committee of Mansfield Township terminated Centex’s general development plan. The court has ruled that the township had good cause to terminate the plan because the developer had changed part of the approved plan by not developing all areas contained within the original plan.
