When is an Agreement in Lieu of an Erosion and Sediment Control needed?
An Agreement in Lieu of an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan is issued only for single-family dwelling construction projects which meet certain requirements (see the application). When approved and issued by the County, this Agreement serves as the erosion control permit for the project. The Agreement is needed when the project involves 10,000 square feet of land disturbance or greater. This threshold is 2,500 square feet in the Town of Orange, Town of Gordonsville, and on any residential-zoned property (the County administers erosion control regulations for the entire county, including the towns).

The vast majority of single-family dwelling construction projects will require an Agreement in Lieu of an Erosion and Sediment Control Plan.
