LELAND — Last week, Leland Planning Board approved a subdivision plat for the planned townhouse development, Bellamy Place.

Bellamy Place plans to bring 70 townhouses and eight additional rental units to a 13.87-acre undeveloped parcel off Village Road in Leland.

The proposed development is located outside, but adjacent to the floodplain near Mill Creek. About 1.5 acres of the parcel with frontage on Village Road is zoned C-1 commercial and the remaining acreage is zoned R-6 residential medium density. Townhouses will be built in residentially-zoned portion and a duplex and two triplexes will be on commercially-zoned areas.

Each townhome will be 1,680 square feet to include the planned two-bedroom, two-story a one-car garage unit.

To prevent developing “a street that goes to nowhere,” as described by Planning Board member Stephen Whitley, the board approved the preliminary subdivision plat by requiring a non-motorized connection instead.

The duplex and triplexes will likely be rented out, while the townhomes will be owned.

The plans have been reviewed twice by Leland’s Technical Review Committee in March and April. Right Angle Engineering prepared the plans, which are being developed by Steve Shuttleworth.
