Whether a judge of the Land Court correctly ruled that the proposal of a non-profit private college for development of land in a single family residential zone for an institute of learning offering education to older students, which would include education and related use buildings as well as four apartment buildings for those students, did not qualify as an educational use within the meaning of G. L. c. 40A, § 3, the Dover Amendment.
