The Town of Fuquay-Varina allows minor subdivision, exempt, and recombination plats to be recorded using an administrative process without the Town Board of Commissioners' approval.
This is the division of a land parcel into, at most, four (4) lots meeting the conditions listed below:
The subdivision does not involve any new public street/road dedication to give access to the proposed lots.
The subdivision does not involve the extension of public sanitary sewer or water lines.
The subdivision will not create any new or residual parcels that do not satisfy the requirements of the Land Development Ordinance (LDO).
A minor subdivision is not necessarily required to include construction of road improvements; however, the minor subdivision must include a dedication of an additional right-of-way if it is required by the Town's Community Transportation Plan (CTP).
Exempt plats do not create additional lots. Examples of an exempt plat include: the addition of easements to a parcel; an additional right-of-way dedication for an existing public street; and/or a boundary survey of an existing parcel or lot.
A recombination plat is where two or more parcels or portions of a parcel(s) are combined into one parcel or where boundary lines are adjusted. A recombination plat does not permit the creation of additional lots beyond what was existing prior to the proposed recombination.
