The Sagaponack Village Board this week gave the owner of a large parcel of farmland a somewhat reluctant nod of approval to move forward with plans for a 9-lot housing subdivision that will split one of the largest swaths of contiguous farmland on the South Fork.

Members of the board lamented that their hands were effectively tied if the property owner, Kenneth Schwenk, wished to proceed with the plans that the board gave preliminary approval to on Monday.

The plans will still have to go through the normal site plan review by the same board, but since the layout meets the village’s zoning regulations, changes to the plan would likely only be minor.
