Consider Preliminary Subdivision Application (#PP03-CR-27) - Perkins Subdivision

Topic Description:

The applicant is seeking Preliminary Plat approval to divide approximately 40.6 acres into three (3) single-family residential lots. The subject property is zoned Rural Agriculture (RA), and is located on the west side of State Route 616 (Bristersburg Road) south of its intersection with State Route 617 (Blackwells Mill Road).  

Section 9-7 of the Subdivision Ordinance requires that "…all preliminary plats approved by the Planning Commission shall be referred to the Board of Supervisors at its next regularly scheduled meeting…If the Board takes no action on the preliminary plat referral, the preliminary plat shall be deemed approved in accordance with the actions of the Planning Commission."

The Planning Commission staff reports are available upon request.

Requested Action of the Board of Supervisors:

No action is necessary, unless a majority of the Board wishes to consider this preliminary subdivision application.  On May 29, 2003 , the Planning Commission voted to approve the Perkins Preliminary Plat subject to the conditions noted below:

  1. The final plat shall be in general conformance with the Preliminary Subdivision Plat entitled "Perkins Subdivision" dated November 15, 2002 , and received in the Planning Office on April 17, 2003 ; however, the following items need to be addressed prior to the Board of Supervisors Action:


A.     In accordance with Section 3-400.12 of the Fauquier County Zoning Ordinance, front building restriction lines are measured (and shall be noted on the Preliminary Plat) from the centerline of the roadway, not the property line.

B.     The bulk regulations for the appropriate zoning district shall be listed on the plan.

C.     Lots 4 and 5 shall meet the minimum lot width requirements for RA zoning; please note on the plan if this is a cluster development and provide the accurate bulk regulations for such.

D.     The Preliminary Plat shall include the width of the right-of-way on Route 616 from either the centerline of the road or the edge of pavement to the property line.

E.      The Preliminary Plat shall indicate the distance to the nearest intersection
