Commercial Development

COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT/CONSTRUCTION LESS THAN 1 ACRE OF DISTURBANCE

To maintain a consistent stormwater program, Campbell County has opted to apply Technical Criteria 2B for water quality and quantity for projects that are NOT part of a Common Plan of Development and disturb greater than 10,000sqft and less than 1 acre of land, thus not requiring VSMP Permit Coverage.

These commercial projects will need the following in order to obtain a permit:

  • Commercial Permit Application and $400.00 permit fee.
  • Complete set of plans including erosion/sediment controls and stormwater management, prepared by a licensed engineer.
  • Supporting calculations prepared by a licensed engineer.

COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT/CONSTRUCTION 1 ACRE OR GREATER OF DISTURBANCE

Projects disturbing 1 acre or greater, or located within a Common Plan of Development,  a combined permit consisting of a Campbell County Land Disturbance Permit and a VSMP permit will be required. This includes “grandfathered projects”.

These commercial projects will need the following in order to obtain a permit:

COMMERCIAL DEVELOPMENT/CONSTRUCTION CREATING 5,000sqft OR MORE OF IMPERVIOUS SURFACE AREA.

Projects disturbing less than 10,000sqft and NOT part of a Common Plan of Development are not required to obtain a Land Disturbance Permit. However, if the project creates 5,000sqft or more of NEW impervious surface area including building addition, parking area (including gravel) or a combination thereof, the following will be required.

  • A stormwater management analysis. This is a “desk top” analysis performed by a licensed engineer to look at the effects of the new impervious surface area will have on the downstream adjacent property owners.
