A. Code Amendment Relative to “Mass Grading” in the Upper Swift Creek Watershed.
An Ordinance to amend the Code of the County of Chesterfield, 1997, as amended, by amending Sections 8-1 and 8-2 of the Erosion and Sediment Control Ordinance and Section 19-238 of the Zoning Ordinance. Specifically, the amendments would prohibit "mass grading" within the Upper Swift Creek Watershed and would define "mass grading" as the process of altering existing ground contours of more than 80% of the area of any single residential lot as shown on approved construction plans, but would not include alteration of lots (i) that are less than 10,000 square feet, (ii) that are more than 10, 000 square feet after issuance of a certificate of occupancy for a primary residence on the property or (iii) as otherwise approved by the director of environmental engineering when necessary for storm water management purposes. The director’s decision to deny a request for an exception to the mass grading prohibition for storm water management purposes may be appealed to the Circuit Court.
