Use Permit Application for an Excavation / Borrow Pit

What Is a Conditional Use Permit for an Excavation / Borrow Pit?

Section 26-241 of the Chesapeake City Code states that no person shall excavate a borrow pit within the City without first having obtained a Conditional Use Permit from City Council. Certain land uses, such as excavations/borrow pits, require intensive review to determine whether they are appropriate in specified situations and whether special conditions would make the land use sufficiently compatible with the immediate area to warrant the granting of a use permit for the proposed use.
