Upon request by the developer the commission may grant preliminary approval to the proposed subdivision to allow work to begin, if the commission finds that the subdivision map, plans and accompanying documents and data conform to the requirements and are consistent with the purposes of these regulations. At this stage in the approval process no map shall be filed in the Town/City Clerks Office and no part of the property shown on the map may be conveyed. Building permits may be issued in accordance with the approved phasing plan. No building permits will be issued for a subsequent phase until the prior phase has received conditional final approval in accordance with Section 3.02 Certificates of Occupancy shall be withheld by the Zoning Enforcement Officer until that time when Certificates of Occupancy may be granted in accordance with Section 3.10 of the Regulations and conditional final approval has been received.
