Fairfax County Virginia permits waivers of Best Management Practices if the "minimum" necessary for relief is being requested. According to James Patteson, Director of Land Development Services, 18 waivers of Best Management Practices in Hollin Hall Village, Fairfax County followed all the necessary regulations when only 9 dwelling units had existed on the land for 60 years. How could granting 2 waivers per one parcel of land upon which one house stood thereby enabling a developer to build 6 houses per acre in an area zoned 3 houses per acre be the minimum? Enforcement of the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Act/Ordinance is needed to stop waivers being granted that exceed the minimum necessary for relief. Who enforces these regulations? Obviously not, Fairfax County in Hollin Hall Village.
