About BHA

Purpose of the Guidelines

The Design Guidelines set basic requirements that support the aims of the Covenants. The Guidelines promote a harmonious community aesthetic and a conservation consciousness, and, more practically, a uniform review process for obtaining approval of the Architectural Review Committee.

If these Guidelines are adhered to in a specific set of plans, a harmonious community aesthetic will be captured even though individual tastes, lifestyle needs and the specific needs/traits encouraged by the Bald Head Island environment prevail in other elements of the plans. This document also strives to promote clear expectations and comprehension of the design requirements for members entering the building process, as well as greater opportunities for objectivity and consistency (therefore fairness) on the part of fellow members who have agreed to review building plans.

Architectural Review

The Architectural Review Committee (ARC) has the crucial charge of reviewing home plans and administering the Design Guidelines, with numerous reviews handled each year for home plans, landscaping and renovation-related submittals.
