Chapter 17C of the Town Code for the Town of Brookhaven creates a moratorium halting construction on substandard parcels (lot width of less than 60 feet or a lot area of less than 6,000 square feet) until the Board completes planning studies to enact comprehensive zoning changes. Though, there are exceptions for work in progress and hardship as described below. The moratorium is based on a desire for comprehensive planning and smart growth for the present and the future.
