Stop & Shop’s plans for a new gas station on Route 35 have been officially withdrawn from the Planning and Zoning Commission’s consideration.
A Sept. 17 letter from Langan Engineering, which handled Stop & Shop’s application, asked to withdraw five different requests related to the project.
The plans had been before the commission since the spring.
The letter did not cite a reason, but the withdrawal follows a vote last week by the commission to deny a request for a “certificate of location approval” for a gas station at 65 Danbury Road, the former Morganti construction yard across from South Street.
Without a vote approving the location for a gasoline sales facility — required under a special provision of state law — the construction proposals under more traditional local zoning regulations appeared largely moot.
The letter of withdrawal was signed by Timothy Onderko, Langan Engineering senior project engineer on the gas station plan.
