Land Disturbance Permits and Tertiary Permits info
Rodney Buckingham, Land Development Officer, is the best county staff person for questions related to land disturbance. Mr. Buckingham may be reached at 706-253-8858 or email@example.com
If a project involves land disturbance of one (1) acre or more, a land disturbance permit is likely needed. If a project involves land disturbance of less than one (1) acre disturbed and does not include other permitting such as a building permit, contact Mr. Buckingham before beginning land disturbance to confirm the project scope.
In certain subdivisions, a stand-alone, per-lot land disturbance permit called a tertiary permit may be needed. Before beginning land disturbance in a subdivision, contact Mr. Buckingham to determine whether or not a tertiary permit may be needed.
For a land disturbance permit and/or tertiary permit, submit three (3) sets of civil plans to Mr. Buckingham in the Planning & Development office along with an erosion & sedimentation control plan review checklist. County staff delivers the plans to the federal Natural Resources Conservation Service staff, who reviews the erosion & sedimentation control portion of the plans and must approve them. Mr. Buckingham notifies project representatives when plans are approved.
