JACKSBORO, TN (WLAF) – During Monday’s Campbell County Regional planning commission meeting, a public hearing was held on a resolution to amend the subdivision regulations of Campbell County regarding the maximum number of lots (under 5 acres) using a joint easement as primary access.

 

The resolution was approved and amends the county’s subdivision regulations to set the maximum number of lots that can use a joint easement as their primary access to no more than four lots. This is pertaining to lots that are under five acres.

No one from the public was in attendance at the public hearing and afterwards, the planning commission unanimously approved the change to the regulations. 

According to County Planner Jordan Rockwell, the amendment “basically closes a loop hole where a developer might come and try to subdivide” and have too many lots using the same joint easement. 

“We don’t want joint easements overwhelmed. We’re trying to avoid haphazard development and have more orderly development,” Rockwell said. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 02/06/2024-6AM)
