Predominantly Steep Slope
Your property is considered to have a predominantly steep slope if the level of the slope is between 30 feet to 44 feet per 100 feet of horizontal distance. This type of slope may restrict the full use of the site and may require a stairway to navigate. Below are two examples of this type of slope.
A very steep slope, a cliff, will restrict the full use of the site. A cliff will have a slope that is equal to or greater than 45 feet per 100 feet of horizontal distance. A stairway or equivalent would be essential to negotiate this slope.
Low and Wet
A property that is low and wet will also restrict the use of a site. The examples below illustrate that a property is considered low and wet when it is subject to water conditions and is below grade level. Landfill must be brought in to bring the property up to building standards.
