"The plaintiffs, however, as owners of land within either the R-3 zone or the R-5 zone, the zones to which the amendment pertains, are aggrieved parties by virtue of General Statutes 8-8 (a) (1). . . . We determine that the plaintiffs were aggrieved parties by virtue of their ownership of land within the zone to which the amendment pertained . . . ." Cole v. Planning & Zoning Commission, 30 Conn.
