§ 123-20 - Driveways and Vehicular Access.

To ensure site safety and to protect the safety and capacity of the road network, the following standards are established to control site access:

  1. Any property having access onto a State Highway shall obtain a State Driveway permit, or a letter from the NH DOT stating that such permit is not necessary given the scope of the current application.
  2. Any property having access onto a Town Highway shall obtain a Town Driveway Permit, or a letter from the Public Works Director stating that such permit is not necessary given the scope of the current application.
  3. A lot shall have no more than one driveway onto each road on which it fronts, except that a pair of one-way driveways (one each entrance and exit) which are adequately designed, signed and marked as being one-way may be substituted for a single two-way driveway, and except as permitted in Section D next below.
  4. Due to access needs of Industry, industrial uses in the Industrial-1 District may have multiple driveways provided that they are not located within 100 feet of any other driveway on or off-site.
  5. All commercial driveways shall be paved with bituminous concrete.
  6. Driveways shall be in accordance with Article 131-67.C (8).
  7. For commercial sites, there shall be connecting drives (not considered driveways when calculating the limit on the number of driveways) provided to the property boundaries of adjoining commercial sites to permit access to adjacent properties without forcing patrons to travel on the road network.
  8. In the case of a concurrent subdivision and site plan or where otherwise feasible, shared driveways for adjacent lots shall be required. All shared driveways shall require a recorded cross-easement for access.
  9. The Board may require the frontage of the property and the driveway to be curbed if it will improve traffic control and safety. Curbing shall be granite.
