Is the Birch Creek subdivison and The Arbors subdivision on Ploof Road in the Leland or Belville city limits?

The Arbors subdivision is in Leland. As for Birch Creek, it depends on where you are, Belville Mayor-elect Jack Batson says.

Batson said the first part of Birch Creek is in Belville. Then after the first stop sign in the development, it becomes Leland. Birch Creek’s section of Belville is completely surrounded by Leland, he said, as other sections of town are.

The area’s maps are confusing. You can be in Leland, then the next second in Belville, then the next second in unincorporated Brunswick County. Parts of Waterford on U.S. 17 are in Leland, other parts in Belville. The same goes for Stoney Creek, another residential development.

Some local residents would like to see the towns merge, to save money on services and collaborate on projects. Batson and Leland Mayor Walter Futch are amenable to the idea.

A lot of residents of Birch Creek have felt under-represented because they don’t feel like they’re part of Belville, Batson said.

“They’re really isolated from the rest of the town,” he said. “A lot of them don’t even know they live in Belville.”
