CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) — Chesapeake's City Council plans to revisit its approval of a proposed subdivision that the Navy opposes.
Council members voted 5-4 last week to rezone more than 15 acres a few miles from Fentress Naval Auxiliary Landing Field. Seacrest Homes and Development wants to build a 31-home subdivision on the property.
The property is in a noise zone where the Navy wants to curb development.
The Navy says the council's decision violates a commitment that Chesapeake and Virginia Beach made to reduce density around nearby Oceana Naval Air Station.
Seacrest president Bill Blankenship says dense suburban development already surrounds the property.
The Virginian-Pilot (http://bit.ly/Zst7u8 ) reports that the council plans to reconsider the rezoning at a meeting on Tuedsay.
