No action is necessary, unless a majority of the Board
wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision
application. On December 8, 2004, the Planning Commission
voted to approve the Loveless Lot 10 Preliminary Plat,
subject to the conditions noted below:
The Final Plat shall be in general conformance with
the Preliminary Plat entitled "Loveless Lot 10" dated July
7, 2004, signed by James R. Ashley on 10-6-04 and received
in the Planning Office on October 7, 2004, except as
modified by these conditions. This approval is for a
maximum of two (2) residential lots.
Pursuant to Section 7-603 of the Fauquier County Zoning
Ordinance, a landscape plan shall be submitted with the
Final Construction Plans for approval.
driveway culverts are to be a minimum of 15 inches
diameter and pass no less than the 10 year storm. VDOT
may have a higher standard.
The County recommends that no below grade basements
be constructed on soils with high water table due to wetness
unless the foundation drainage system of the structure is
designed by licensed professional engineer to assure a dry
basement and preclude wet yards and recirculation of pumped
or collected water. Where possible, all exterior foundation
drainage systems shall be designed to gravity daylight
without assistance from mechanical means. All discharged
water (mechanical or gravity) must be conveyed to an
adequate channel. Drainage easements, where necessary,
shall be placed on the final plat. A note that “Basements
are not recommended in mapping units 10B, 13B, and 50A.
Basements in these mapping units are subject to flooding due
to high seasonal water tables. Sump systems may run
continuously, leading to possible premature pump failure.”
preliminary plan shows access for both of these lots
across an ingress/egress easement. Evidence is to be
submitted with the first submission of the Final
Construction Plan that this access can be used by this
owner. VDOT may require improvements to Route 17 for
access at this location due to the high volumes of
traffic on Route 17.
The plan shall include a note that the proposed lots
will access only from Stribling Drive with no direct access
to Route 17.
existing drainfield shall be shown.
Virginia Certified Professional Soil Scientist (CPSS)
needs to adjust the preliminary soil map with revisions
onto the Final Construction Plan. This shall be done in
the field and checked for any additional soils
information to be added to the Final Construction Plan.
Interpretive information from the Preliminary Soil
Report for each mapping unit shown on the Final
Construction Plan shall be placed on the same sheet as
the soil map. Also a Symbols Legend shall be placed on
the Final Construction Plan to identify spot symbols.
final soil map will be filed in the Building Department
to be used exclusively for obtaining soils information
for this proposed subdivision.
copies of this final soil map with CPSS signature need
to be submitted to the Soil Scientist Office before
final plat approval is made.
final signature sets will require original CPSS
type of primary and reserve drainfield area shall be
stated for each lot.
statements under Home Sites and Road Construction
shall be placed on the same sheet as the final soils
The County recommends that no below grade
basements be constructed on soil mapping units 10B, 13B, and
434B due to wetness unless the foundation drainage system of
the structure is designed by a Virginia Licensed
Professional Engineer. The foundation drainlines should be
daylighted for gravity flow on all structures.
The following statement shall be included on
final soils map and E & S plans: “PRIOR TO FINAL
CONSTRUCTION PLAN APPROVAL, IT SHALL BE AGREED THAT ALL
DRAINFIELD AREAS ARE TO BE SURROUNDED BY SAFETY FENCING AND
NO CONSTRUCTION TRAFFIC SHALL CROSS NOR SHALL LAND
DISTURBANCE OCCUR IN THESE AREAS. THE FENCING OF THESE
AREAS IS TO BE VERIFIED BY COUNTY STAFF BEFORE THE ISSUANCE
OF THE LAND DISTURBING PERMIT.”
Foundations placed in soil mapping units that
show a moderate, high, or very high shrink-swell potential
in the most recent Interpretive Guide to the Soils of
Fauquier County, Virginia will require
a geotechnical evaluation in order to determine proper
