Developers have deferred a request for a buffer requirement reduction for a project off Village Way in Braselton.
The Braselton Planning Commission was set to hear the request Jan. 27 from Lensned, LLC, for zoning changes for a lot at 3705 Village Way in Liberty Village. The group requested Thursday, Jan. 23, to defer the hearing.
Lensned is requesting a zoning change for the planned unit development to amend the required 40-foot development buffer along Hwy. 211 to be a 20-foot development buffer.
"The most recent other projects on this side of Hwy. 211 like the veterinarian's office and dentist have very minimal buffers — less than 10 feet," according to the developer's letter of intent. "A 20-foot buffer would still be larger, but would also allow for better land use in terms of landscaping, inter-parcel sidewalks and driveways. This would mean that this request would lead to no overall adverse effect on the quality of the development, and on the contrary, allow for a better quality development in the end."
