Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

On Tuesday November 10th at 4:00pm we will have an open house on 160D statutory required changes. In accordance with recent changes by the state legislature to local government planning and development regulation, also known as Chapter 160D, the Town is amending the Unified Development Code (Chapter 155) of the Town’s ordinances to come into compliance with the state’s new rules. For the most part, the changes are administrative, required by law, and will result in no change in Town standards or service.
A few significant changes with the 160D regulations are:

  • Site plans will still go through the Technical Review Committee (TRC) process but they will no longer go to Planning Board for final approval. This will save a substantial amount of time.
  • Major Subdivisions will also continue to go through the TRC as they do now, but they will not be a quasi-judicial procedure anymore.  Therefore they would not go to Town Council and will be reviewed by internal and external TRC departments.  
  • Planned Developments will become conditional zoning, thus they will no longer be quasi-judicial.
  • Conditional uses will become special use permits.

The final draft of the proposed changes will be posted online soon! You will be able to access the proposed ordinance amendment in full on this page once the final edits are complete.

The November 10th Open House will be held at the Clayton Community Center

715 Amelia Church Road. 

We will be will live streaming on our YouTube channel if you wish to attend virtually.  You will be able to virtually ask questions through the comment box on YouTube!  The schedule is below:
4:00pm- Welcome
4:15pm- 160D Presentation
