There are no zoning or subdivision regulations in Coventry. Commercial and residential development is limited only by State permitting and Vermont’s Act 250. Coventry is considered a “one-acre” town under Act 250. This means that an Act 250 permit is need for commercial developments greater than one-acre in size or for subdivisions of land creating six (6) or more lots. Coventry is able to participate in the National Flood Insurance Program due to the regulated flood hazard area. Proper enforcement of the Town’s Flood Hazard Area Regulations by the Zoning Administrator is important to maintain the Town’s eligibility in the National Flood Insurance Program.
