WEDDINGTON – The Town Council on Monday approved preliminary plats for two subdivisions and the final plat for another.
Pulte Homes is planning to build 48 homes on 58 acres in a conservation subdivision along Lochaven Road named Weddington Preserve. The company would build the homes on the currently vacant land at a density of .84 units per acre on 31.63 acres, leaving 55.5 percent as conservation land. The city requires 50 percent of conservation subdivision land to be set aside.
The company will be required to create a 100-foot buffer along Lochaven and to build a right-turn lane on Lochaven and a left-turn lane from Providence Road onto Lochaven.
The second preliminary plat approved was for a 185-lot conservation subdivision on 234.5 acres off Antioch Church Road. The density of the subdivision, called Falls at Weddington, would be 0.79 units per acre with 52.7 percent remaining as conservation land. Withrow Land Ventures LLC of Coral Springs, Fla., is the subdivision’s developer.
The council gave final plat approval for part of the Vintage Creek subdivision. The plat was for 52 of the conservation subdivision’s 90 lots, which will be built on 116.5 acres off Weddington-Matthews Road. Standard Pacific of the Carolinas LLC plans to build the homes at a density of 0.77 units per acre. The company will either extend Amanda Drive into the subdivision, or provide funds for that construction.
