VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (WAVY) - A group of Virginia Beach residents won't have to worry about a new developer coming into their backyards.
Tuesday night, Virginia Beach City Council indefinitely deferred a plan to re-zone part of the Christopher Farms neighborhood, which was part of a developer's plan to build more houses.
10 On Your Side first brought you this story in August. Then homeowners were fighting a plan to build more than 100 homes between Holland Road and Nimmo Parkway. Residents feared the project would bring down their property values.
Some residents believed the homes would be built over historic burial grounds.
City officials say the project could come back up for a vote again, but there's no set date at this time.
