(A)   Hardship. Where the Planning Commission finds that extraordinary hardships may result from strict compliance with these subdivision regulations, it may vary the regulations so that substantial justice may be done and the public interest secured, provided that such variation will not have the effect of nullifying the intent and purpose of these regulations.

The standards and requirements of these subdivision regulations may be modified by the Planning Commission in the case of a plan and program for a new town, a complete community or a neighborhood unit which, in the judgment of the Planning Commission, provides adequate public spaces and improvements for the circulation, recreation, light, air and service needs of the tract when fully developed and populated, and which also provides such covenants or other legal provisions as will assure conformity to, and achievement of, the plan.
