Consideration of Kevin Ireland's approved but sold subdivision, Map 9, Lot(s) 27, 27A. R. Bachelder has purchased the entire approved subdivision from Kevin Ireland. To date, no lots have been sold. R. Bachelder proposes to amend the subdivision by changing the covenants approved the reon. He proposes to add some. He proposes to delete some.
Before taking any action, the Planning Board requests two pieces of information.
“Does changing ONLY covenants on an approved subdivision plan necessitate a full scale review of the entire plan?”
In consideration of this question, three salient facts need be considered. The first is that NO OTHER CHANGES of any sort are being proposed to the plan. The second is that NO lots have been sold or are committed to be sold. The third is that recently adopted changes to the Town Building and Land Use Ordinance include this provision, (Section 12, D. 2)
“Any and all proposed amendments to an already approved subdivision shall follow in full the application procedures outlined in this section.”
