PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - A Superior Court judge has upheld a ruling allowing a $1.8 million waterfront house that was mistakenly built on parkland to be moved.

The Providence Journal (https://bit.ly/1teke4u ) reports Judge William E. Carnes Jr. denied an appeal by environmental group Save The Bay challenging the Coastal Resources Management Council’s approval of a plan to move the home closer to a wetland.

The Rhode Island Supreme Court found in June that the home, built by developer Four Twenty Corp., was built entirely on land in Narragansett owned by the Rose Nulman Park Foundation, and must be removed.

The developer began building the home in 2009 but didn’t discover the error until 2011. It argued it should not be penalized for a surveying mistake.

The court said the park’s property rights outweighed that.
