The Land Development Division of Community Development consists of two sections: Plan Review and Development Inspections.

Click below to expand or collapse each section.

  Plan Review

The Plan Review section includes reviews for new developments, redevelopment, final plat recording, landscape plans, and stormwater systems, just to name a few, to ensure all development and property subdivision within the City complies with federal, state and local regulations. Specific reviews include site development, transportation/traffic, arborist and stormwater management. Staff has created a    Land Development Permit (LDP) Handbook to help guide the process. Here is the City’s   General LDP Plan Review Checklist the City uses when reviewing Stormwater Management Reports and LDP Plan Sets. Please note that not all comments may be applicable to your project.

MOA

The City of Peachtree Corners received its    Memorandum of Agreement from the Georgia Soil and Water Conservation Commission (GSWCC) in August of 2015, therefore all plan reviews for Erosion and Sediment Control are done by City Staff.

Protecting Soil and Water Resources

The Plan Review Section works closely with Gwinnett County , Georgia Soil & Water Conservation Commission , Georgia Environmental Protection Division  and United States Army Corps of Engineers  to ensure all new development and redevelopment projects are authorized and that both soil and water resources are protected. Contacts for all applicable approvals can be found on the last page of the LDP Handbook. These approvals must be obtained before a Land Disturbance Permit will be issued by the City of Peachtree Corners.

  Development Inspections

Development Inspections ensure all land disturbance permitted projects are following the approved plan and maintain compliance with environmental and development regulations in the field.

Initial Phase Erosion Control Permit

The Development Department will conduct a pre-construction meeting after the plans have been approved and before the permit is issued. At the pre-construction meeting, the contractor, owner or engineer will meet with City Staff to discuss development inspections, record keeping, stormwater sampling and sediment control compliance. The permit issued at the pre-construction meeting is the Initial Phase Erosion Control Permit.

Land Development Permit

A full Land Development Permit will be issued once the City receives the 7-day Inspection letter from the Design Professional on the Approved Plans. Until a full LDP is given, the contractor is only authorized to put in initial phase Best Management Practices.

Land Development Inspections

Development Inspectors perform both random and scheduled inspections on all construction sites. Inspectors monitor site progress and enforce erosion and sedimentation control, tree preservation, stream buffer protection, floodplain, and post-development stormwater management ordinances.

At the conclusion of the project, all sections of plan review, including zoning, arborist, engineering and transportation will perform a final site inspection. All items must be completed before Certificate of Occupancy (CO) or a Certificate of Completion (CofC) will be granted.

City Staff makes determinations on state waters, any applicable stream buffers, and investigates and resolves erosion and drainage related complaints.
