This map shall comprehend an area extending at least 1/2 mile on each side of the proposed manufactured home park and shall identify roads, political boundaries, other manufactured home parks, subdivisions, and important landmarks and natural features.
The following information shall be furnished, either set forth on the face of the drawing or submitted as separate documents:
Where required by this chapter, at the time of filing the final plat, an erosion and sedimentation control plan approved by the Carroll County plan-approving authority shall also be filed in accordance with the provisions of the Virginia Erosion and Sedimentation Control Handbook; and
Signed statements of the appropriated officials concerning the availability of water, sewer, gas, and electricity of the proposed manufactured home park; and

The agent shall provide initial review of any preliminary plat. In such initial review, the agent shall give a first review to see if it appears that the preliminary plat meets the requirements of this chapter. If it appears that the requirements of this chapter have not been met, such plat shall be returned to the developer for modification, with reasons provided for any noncompliance. This initial review is not a determination of compliance of this chapter but is done only for convenience of the developer. If it appears that the plat meets the requirements of this chapter, the agent shall forward to the Highway Department, PSA, and Health Department of Carroll County copies of the preliminary plat. They shall approve, approve with changes, or disapprove the preliminary plat and return it to the agent. The administrator or agent shall not approve a final plat unless and until approval has been granted by the Highway Department, PSA, and Health Department of Carroll County.
Following return of the preliminary plat from the agencies referenced in Subsection A of this section, unless the manufactured home park is a small manufactured home park as defined, the administrator shall review the preliminary plat and communicate within 60 days, in writing, with the developer, informing him of action taken and stating specific changes, if any, that are required in the preliminary layout. If for any reason the manufactured home park is disapproved, the reasons for such disapproval shall be given. In cases where approval of the plat is conditional upon changes being made in the manufactured home park layout, one copy of the plat shall be returned to the developer with the desired changes marked thereon or with notes of such changes attached. The sixty-day time period may be extended by agreement of the administrator with the developer. Approval of a preliminary plat does not guarantee approval of a final plat for recordation.
Any proposed manufactured home park creating four or less new lots may be reviewed and approved by the agent, without referral to the administrator. All other provisions of this chapter shall apply to the content, review, and approval of such small manufactured home park plat. The agent may refer such small manufactured home plat to the administrator for approval, and appeal of any decision concerning such small manufactured home park plat shall be taken by the developer to the administrator. This small manufactured home park provision may not be used to expand or modify existing manufactured home parks, and plats of such expansion or modification shall be submitted and reviewed as otherwise provided herein.
After receiving notice of approval of the preliminary plat, the developer shall submit to the administrator four copies of plans and specifications for all improvements to be installed. The administrator or agent shall advise the developer concerning the character and extent of improvements and the estimated amount of the performance bond or other surety that will be required before final approval of the manufactured home park plat. The administrator or agent, after consultation with the Highway Department, PSA, Health Department and other public officials, shall advise the developer of approval or disapproval, in writing, within 60 days.
The developer shall, prior to filing with the administrator a final plat for approval, complete all improvements and installation of utilities required under these regulations, or, in lieu of completing said improvements, the developer shall furnish the County with a bond as required by Article X.
The developer shall, within 18 months after official notification of approval by the administrator or agent in respect to the preliminary plat, apply, in writing, to the administrator for approval of the final manufactured home park plat and submit 11 copies thereof prepared in accordance with this chapter. The developer may file for approval only that portion of the approved preliminary plat which he proposed to record and develop at that time.
Unless an application for final approval is made within 18 months after approval of the preliminary plat, said approval of the preliminary plat shall become null and void. The administrator or agent shall, within 60 days from the date of submittal of the final plat, approve, modify or disapprove such plat.

Unless the developer shall have said plat recorded in the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Carroll County within six months after final approval by the administrator and before any lots are rented, leased, or occupied in said manufactured home park, approval of the final plat shall become null and void; however, in any case where construction of facilities to be dedicated for public use has commenced pursuant to an approved plan or permit with surety approved by the administrator, or where the developer has furnished surety to the governing body or the administrator by certified check, cash escrow, bond, or letter of credit in the amount of the estimated cost of construction of such facilities, the time for plat recordation shall be extended to one year after final approval or to the time limit specified in the surety agreement approved by the administrator, whichever is greater.
