Cluster & Planned Developments

Prior to issuance of a building permit to construct an exterior alteration or addition to an existing structure or dwelling in a Cluster or Planned Development, application shall be made to the Inspector of Buildings in the usual manner.

The Inspector of Buildings shall forthwith forward the application along with all plans and specification to the Design Review Board and the development’s Homeowners Association for their review and recommendation.

In both instances, the recommendation shall be forwarded to the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Inspector of Buildings within twenty-one (21) days.  Failure to make such recommendations within twenty-one (21) days of the receipt of the referral shall be deemed to constitute approval.  Once the recommendations have been received by the Zoning Board of Appeals and the Inspector of Buildings, or said twenty-one (21) days have elapsed, an appointment at the next administrative meeting of the Board will be scheduled.

At that time, the Zoning Board of Appeals shall determine whether the proposed alteration or addition exceeds the terms of the Special Permit under which the development was constructed and requires and amendment to said Special Permit.

If the Board of Appeals determines that an amendment is not required, it shall notify the Inspector of Buildings and a building permit may issue. (4/94)
