This Plan of Conservation and Development has been prepared as required under Connecticut General Statutes Section 8-23. All towns and municipalities must amend and adopt a new plan at least once every ten years. In Glastonbury, the last revision was done in 2003. This plan will be in effect until 2017, unless sooner amended.
The plan is intended to be a statement of Glastonbury’s policies, goals, and standards for the development of the Town over the next ten years. Equally important are the policies for conservation of our resources.
Review and amendment to any Plan of Conservation and Development within the ten-year term is not uncommon. Indeed, it is intended as a living document, to address any number of changing conditions and circumstances in areas such as the: economy, demographic trends, housing availability, etc.
An amendment has been made to the 2007-2017 Plan of Conservation & Development, effective February 26, 2012. Under Employment Area (PLANNING AREA SIX) Policies LAND USE AND DEVELOPMENT (page 48), a new policy section has been added: "8) Support multi-level elderly living/care facilities on lands that can provide buffering to adjacent residential districts that have commercial/industrial development limitations (i.e. wetlands, slopes, wildlife habitat)."
