Residents of Benn’s Grant say they were promised a serene view of the site’s two lakes when they first bought into the new development.

They’ll still get a view, Benn’s Grant developers proposed Tuesday. It will just include 28 condominiums in the middle of it.

At its meeting Tuesday, Nov. 28, the Isle of Wight County Planning Commission voted 6-2 for more condominiums and more growth in the northern end of the county as it approved a conditional zoning amendment request from East West Communities, which is looking to rezone 26.43 acres of commercial and open space areas to residential in order to implement 216 additional housing units at Benn’s Grant.

With the weight of the Planning Commission and county staff now standing favorably behind it, the developer’s application will move on to the Isle of Wight Board of Supervisors for a final decision at a public hearing Thursday, Dec. 14.
