The Covenants Committee for Stoney Glen South is here to assure the Association members that exterior changes to homes and/or properties in Stoney Glen South adhere to the Covenants and Community Standards documents.

All homes and property located in Stoney Glen South are part of the Stoney Glen South Association, Inc. This Association has covenants and deed restrictions governing numerous aspects of the community. These are legally binding and governed by Virginia law. These covenants are recorded at the Chesterfield County Courthouse. They include:

– Book 4087 Pages 201 to 218 entitled “Declaration of Rights, Restrictions, Affirmative Obligations and Conditions Applicable to All Property in Stoney Glen South”.
– Book 4087 Pages 219 to 250 entitled “Declaration of Covenants and Restrictions of the Stoney Glen South Association, Inc. and the Reed’s Landing Corporation, a Virginia Corporation”.

As a resident of Stoney Glen South, you should be aware of what is covered in these documents since you are required to abide by them. You will find that adherence to the covenants and restrictions helps keep our community a desirable place to live. You received a copy of these covenants in the “disclosure packet” provided to you before closing on your home. If you misplaced your copy, please contact a member of the Board to request another copy or view the online version here.

If any Stoney Glen South resident notices what they believe is a covenant or deed restriction violation, they should report that to the Board for investigation. All complaints must be in writing. The identity of the complaining resident will not be disclosed during the investigation. If you would like to report an allegation of a Covenant, Architectural Review Board, or Community Standards violation, you may do so below.

Please request permission for all exterior changes to your property (home or land) from the Committee at least 30 calendar days prior to starting any work. It will save you time and effort in the long run. An ARB application may be downloaded here. Application submission information is provided there as well.
