Wetlands Board

P&Z Home >Boards and Commissions >Wetlands Board

 

Isle of Wight County adopted its first Wetlands Ordinance in 1974 along with the creation of the Wetlands Board.  The purpose of the Wetlands Ordinance is to preserve and prevent the destruction of wetlands within the county while accommodating necessary economic development in a manner consistent with wetlands preservation.

In 2009 the County adopted the Coastal Primary Sand Dunes and Beaches Ordinance which is also regulated by the Wetlands Board. The purpose of the Sand Dunes and Beaches Ordinance is to preserve and protect coastal primary sand dunes and beaches and prevent their despoliation and destruction within the County while accommodating necessary economic development in a manner consistent with the protection of these features.

Citizens who desire to develop or impact wetlands or primary sand dunes and beaches are responsible to file a Joint Permit Application. Prior to considering an application, public notice is required along with notification to  adjoining property owners. When the Board determines that the anticipated private and public benefit of the proposal exceeds the anticipated private and public detriment, the proposal conforms with state guidelines and the proposal will not violate the intent of either ordinance, the Board may grant a permit. Action of the Wetlands Board is subject to review by the Virginia Marine Resources Commission.
