Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Board

​The Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Board (CBPA) is comprised of nine members​, who are appointed by the City Council, and responsible for the review of various requests to the Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area Ordinance (CBPAO).

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The City of Virginia Beach adopted the CBPAO on January 1, 1991. This ordinance affects all property in Virginia Beach that drains into the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, approximately the northern one-third of the City.

In addition, the CBPAO is an effort to enhance the water quality by protecting environmentally-sensitive areas such as buffers adjacent to waterways, tidal shores, and  wetlands, as well as highly erodible soils. These sensitive areas, called Resource Protection Areas (RPAs), are closest to the shorelines that have an intrinsic water quality value or are sensitive to the impact of development. All other lands in the watershed are called Resource Management Areas (RMAs). The RMA is intended to protect the integrity of the RPA and extends from the RPA boundary outward to the watershed boundary limit. 

 Further information regarding the CBPAO can be found in Appendix F of the Virginia Beach City Code.

Application Filing Deadline

The Deadline for filing an application to be heard by the CBPA Board is prior to the 1st of each month to be heard at the following month’s hearing if the application is complete.

Application Filing Fees

The ​filing fees must be made payable to the City Treasurer.

  • CBPA Variance Application Fee $450

*The costs of the public notice sign(s), legal advertisements in the Virginia-Pilot/Beacon, and the postage for mailing of requirement notices to property owners adjacent to the subject site is required in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Most recently notification fees were variable and based on the number of signs required, number of adjacent property owners and the amount of text in the legal notice and could not be assessed and paid until after the application fee was paid. Effective October 1, 2017, a flat fee for the CBPA public notice will be implemented and will be paid at the same time as the Board application fee.
