Virginia Supreme Court: Hanover citizens have “standing” in Wegmans lawsuit

Hanover citizens, particularly the residents who live adjacent to the Wegmans distribution center, got good news in the recent Virginia Supreme Court decision. On appeal, their standing to bring suit against the Board of Supervisors was upheld.

The high court’s decision reversed the Hanover Circuit Court in this matter and remanded the case to Circuit Court.

Residents alleged the Board’s decision for Wegmans’s 24-hour operation would result in noise and light pollution, environmental degradation, increased truck traffic and lower property values, among other harms.
