Editor's Note: These regulations were adopted under the Subdivision Control Law, MGL. c. 41, § 81K to 81GG, inclusive. The purpose of said law, as stated in MGL c. 41, § 81M, reads as follows:
"The Subdivision Control Law has been enacted for the purpose of protecting the safety, convenience and welfare of the inhabitants of the cities and Town in which it is, or may hereafter be, put in effect, by regulating the laying out and construction of ways in subdivisions providing access to the several lots therein but which have not become public ways and ensuring sanitary conditions in subdivisions and, in proper cases, parks and open areas. The powers of a Planning Board and of a Board of Appeals under the Subdivision Control Law shall be exercised with due regard for the provision of adequate access to all of the lots in a subdivision by ways that will be safe and convenient for travel; for lessening congestion in such ways and in the adjacent public way; for reducing danger to life and limb in the operation of motor vehicles; for securing safety in the case of fire, flood, panic and other emergencies; for ensuring compliance with applicable zoning ordinances or bylaws; for securing adequate provision for water, sewerage, drainage and other requirements where necessary in a subdivision; and for coordinating the ways in a subdivision with each other and with the public ways in the City or Town in which it is located and with the ways in neighboring subdivisions."
