Hastings Hill Subdivision


7.5+/- acres being offered for sale as 2 tracts of land that can be bought together or separately. The highest and best use would be single family residential development. The zoning for both tracts is RS-9 which provides for 9,000 sqft residential lots (~ roughly 4.5 lots per acre). This property is located inside of the Salem Lake Watershed.

To qualify for a low density standards, developer would need to comply with 1 of 3 of these provisions for low density standards:  1.) All lots 20,000 sq. ft. or greater., 2.) A density of no more than 2 units per 40,000 sq. ft., or 3.) A total Built-Upon Area (BUA) for the development of no more than 24%.  The proposed development would not have to comply with all three of these provisions, but must comply with at least one to be approvable. 

Another allowable provision would be up to 30% BUA if the development provided engineered stormwater controls.  You could also review the 8.2.5.E Paired-Parcel Averaged-Density Development provision of the ordinance to see if that would be advantageous for your proposed development.  To develop above the low density or stormwater management allowable BUA % thresholds mentioned above, the development would have to be approved for Special Intense Development Allocation (SIDA) by the Forsyth County Commissioners. Residential use would not be approved for SIDA, only commercial/industrial would be considered for SIDA since it would provide jobs to the area. In this case, albeit rare, the development could have up to 70% BUA.  Please refer to Watershed Protect plan in attachments below

Tract 1 contains 2 acres with paved, public road frontage, gentle sloping, open grass land with 3 recently surveyed building lots that received a recent soils evaluation indicating conducive soils for 25% reduction septic systems on all 3 lots that would support a 3 bedroom home each. Possible 4 bedroom homes on lots 1-3 with 50% reduction septic systems. Electricity, fiber cable and public water available on Hastings Hill Road.

Tract 2 contains approximately 5.5 acres and is located behind Tract 1. Soils have not been evaluated for septic suitability yet (like Tract 1), but the adjoining property to the south owned by the NC DOT has a 16″ public sewer line, new owner could negotiate access to sewer which would eliminate the need for septic.
