In accordance with authority granted by the General Statutes of Connecticut, § 8-25 et seq., § 8-2b and other relevant sections, the following regulations are hereby adopted as the amended Subdivision Regulations of the Town of Weston.
In order to more fully protect the health and safety of the community, the Commission recognizes the need to:
Prevent contamination of drinking water sources.
Provide flood management measures where needed.
Control erosion and sedimentation.
Encourage energy-efficient development.
Preserve open space and plan for future recreational needs.
Develop a safe and convenient system for traffic and emergency service needs.
These regulations govern the subdivision and resubdivision of land within the Town of Weston pursuant to the provisions of the General Statutes as amended.
No subdivision or resubdivision of land shall be made and no land in any subdivision or resubdivision proposed to the Commission shall be conveyed until a subdivision plan has been prepared in accordance with these regulations and formally endorsed with approval by the Weston Planning and Zoning Commission. For regulation of construction and land alteration see § 230-7.
In the event of a conflict between any provision of these regulations and any other code, ordinance or regulation of the Town of Weston, the more restrictive provision shall be deemed to apply.
Should any article, section or provision of these regulations, as contained herein or as hereafter amended, be adjudged by a court of competent jurisdiction to be invalid or unconstitutional, the adjudication shall pertain only to the article, section or provision so adjudged, and the remainder of the regulations shall remain valid and effective.
These regulations, and all amendments thereto, shall become effective at such time as may be established by the Commission in accordance with the requirements of the General Statutes.
