Site Plan

A site plan must be submitted for review and approval prior to the construction of any building, the modification of any building, the use of land as a parking lot or the alteration of the grade of any parcel of land. The type (class) of Site Plan is determined by the scope and details of the proposed project. More information is available in Chapter 33.02 – Site Regulations of the Newport News Code of Ordinances.
