Section 15.2-2223 of the Code of Virginia states: "The Comprehensive Plan shall be made with the purpose of guiding and accomplishing a coordinated, adjusted, and harmonious development of the territory which will, in accordance with present and probable future needs and resources, best promote the health, safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity, and general welfare of the inhabitants..."
By requiring local governments to adopt Comprehensive Plans, the legislature implied that local government issues are best handled at the local level of government. This Comprehensive Plan, therefore, is the vehicle by which the local government officials and citizens of New Kent County express their goals for the future of their community.
• Development Plan: For subdivisions requiring the construction of publicly-used infrastructure (public and private roads, public water, and/or public sewer), a development plan must be submitted to New Kent Planning for approval. Along with the completed application, the applicant must submit ten copies of the development plan and the appropriate fees. The development plan is sent to various county and state agencies for review and comment. The applicant should receive all comments regarding the development plan within 60 days. Approval of the development plan allows the applicant to proceed with the preparation of the final plats.
• Final Plat: After the approval of a development plan (when required), an application for final plat approval may be submitted. Along with the complete application, the applicant must submit ten copies of the final plat and the appropriate fees. The final plat is sent to various county and state agencies for review and comment. The applicant should receive all comments regarding the final plat within 60 days. Approval of the final plat allows the applicant to proceed with the preparation of record plats depicting the information contained on the approved final plat. After the record plats have been signed by the appropriate agencies, the plat, along with the necessary legal documents, can be recorded by the Clerk of the Circuit Court at the New Kent County Courthouse.
