Architectural Modification FAQs:


Trash and other safety hazards must be a priority during your modification or build.  Fence off areas that post a hazard to youth and communicate with your neighbors.  Mind your construction noise, hours are 8am - 10pm.

What is the ACC?

The Architectural Control Committee (ACC) is comprised of at least three volunteer members of your community and handles any external modification request.  Typically, such a request is required, but please see the Guidelines on the website under Docs & Forms tab for specifics.

Where can I find the ACC Form?
Under the Docs & Forms Tab there are several PDF documents under Home Improvement Information.  Complete the form entitled "ACC Modification Request Form".  You can also complete a Home Improvement Request form under the E-forms tab.  Also, at the bottom of this page you can click "here" for the form as well as the Guidelines and Amended and Restated Deed Restrictions.

How do I submit my form and paperwork?

Digitally online under the Docs and Forms Tab complete the e-form entitled "Home Improvement Request".  You can attach a file to your form.  Or you can email a digital photograph of your paperwork to nf8board@nottinghamforestviii.org.  You can also make alternative arrangements by email us at the email mentioned.
