Administration 15.16 Planned Unit Development (PUD)


Planned Unit Development (PUD) districts (see Section 2.7) are districts that permit variations to allow flexibility to creatively plan a site specific, high quality overall development of their land that is not possible through the strict application of the minimum standards of the Ordinance and are approved in a legislative procedure by the Board of Commissioners in accordance with NCGS §160D. Planned Unit Developments provide for orderly and flexible development under the general policies of this ordinance without the constraints of some of the prescribed standards guiding by-right development. Before any development shall be designated as a Planned Unit Development (PUD) District on the Official Zoning District Map, it shall receive approval pursuant to the terms of this Section and Section 2.7 Planned Unit Developments. B. A Planned Unit Development (PUD) designation may be established on any land located in the Town and its ETJ that complies with all of the applicable standards of this Section. 15.16.1.

A Planned Unit Development shall consist of land under unified control which may be planned and developed as a single development or as an approved programmed series of development phases by multiple developers. "Unified control" means that all land to be included within a Planned Unit Development shall be owned or otherwise under the legal control of the applicant for a Planned Unit Development.

Conditions and site-specific standards shall be limited to those that address conformance of the development and use of the site to this ordinance and officially adopted plans and those standards and conditions that address the impacts reasonably expected to be generated by the development and use of the site.
