A proposed pipeline storage yard for the Atlantic Coast Pipeline (ACP) has been denied a special-use permit by the Augusta County Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA). On a 4-1 vote, the Board turned down a proposal for the facility to be built just south of West Augusta, VA. The proposal had been tabled at the Board’s September and October meetings. The action marks the second time this year that the BZA rejected a storage yard in the county, having denied a permit on March 1 for a similar facility that would have been located north of Churchville.
