Sussex County considers a Multi-Family project as either a Townhouse or a Duplex. A Townhouse is a building constructed in a group of three (3) or more attached dwelling units with a 2 hour fire separation wall in which each unit extends from the foundation to the roof and with a yard or public way on at least two (2) sides. A Duplex is building containing two (2) dwelling units with a vertical fire separation wall or a horizontal floor/ceiling fire separation and with independent exits.
