From Delaware, the Cape-Gazette reports that Sussex County officials have approved a series of amendments to ordinances regulating manufactured home communities. The county council voted unanimously December 14 in favor of amendments to better define emergency ramps and remove some restrictions on the replacement of accessory buildings, such as sheds. The report indicates the amendments allow for an accessory structure, such as a shed, to be replaced on an existing footprint as long as the original structure had a building permit, met all setback requirements and is approved by park management. Residents will only need another building permit, which normally costs less than $10, to replace the structure. A survey will no longer be required to replace an existing structure under this scenario. Variances and surveys will still be required for nonconforming structures that violate setback and separation regulations.
