(A) Where a legally established lot of record in existence at the time of adoption or amendment of this chapter does not meet the minimum requirements for lot width or lot area, the lot of record may be used for any permitted or special land use in the district in which the lot is located; provided that, any building or structure constructed on the lot complies with all other requirements for the zoning district, except as subject to the following:
(1) Required minimum front and rear yard setbacks and the maximum building height limitations shall be met as required in the zoning district in which the lot is located.
(2) The required minimum side yard setback for a lot which is non-conforming by reason of lot width shall be 10% of the width of the non-conforming lot, but in no event shall the required minimum side yard setback for such a non-conforming lot be less than five feet on each side.
(B) If two or more vacant lots of record or a combination of lots and portions of lots of record in existence at the time of the passage of this chapter, or an amendment thereto, with continuous frontage and under single ownership do not meet the requirements established for lot width or lot area, the lands involved shall be considered to be an undivided parcel for the purposes of this chapter, and no portion of that parcel shall be used or divided in a manner which diminishes compliance with lot width and area requirements established by this chapter.
