The Rules and Regulations Governing Subdivisions and Special Permits including Site Plan Review of the Town of Harwich, Massachusetts, adopted by the Planning Board of the Town of Harwich on May 1, 2003, as amended through November 12, 2008, as renumbered, revised and codified by General Code and set forth as Chapter 400 of the Code of the Town of Harwich are hereby approved.
The provisions of Chapter 400, insofar as they are substantively the same as those of regulations in force immediately prior to this acceptance of Chapter 400, are intended as a continuation of such regulations and not as new enactments, and the effectiveness of such provisions shall date from the date of adoption of the prior regulation. All such provisions are hereby continued in full force and effect and are hereby reaffirmed as to their adoption by the Planning Board of the Town of Harwich, and it is the intention of said Planning Board that each such provision contained in Chapter 400 is hereby reaffirmed as it appears in the Code.
In compiling and preparing the regulations for renumbering and revision as part of the Code, certain corrections in grammar, spelling and punctuation were made in said regulations. It is the intention of the Planning Board that all such changes be accepted as part of the regulations as if the regulations so changed had been previously formally adopted to read as such.
In addition, the following changes, amendments or revisions are made herewith, to become effective upon the effective date of this enactment. (Chapter and section number references are to the regulations as they have been renumbered and appear in the Code.)
