The Zoning Board of Appeals on Tuesday approved six variances that allow a proposed three-bedroom, three-bathroom residence at 47 Terry Drive, once hotly contested by neighbors, to move one step closer to being built.

The only opposition on one variance came from board member Susan Mead, who voted “no” on granting pyramid relief of an additional 2,636 cubic feet beyond what is grandfathered at the property, to a total of 5,664 cubic feet. The project now proceeds to the Board of Historic Preservation and Architectural Review for approval.
