8. Such variances as may be deemed necessary by the Board of County Commissioners where, by reason of exceptional shape, size, topography of the lot, condition of the building or land, practical difficulty or unnecessary hardship would result the owner of said property from a strict application or enforcement of the Elbert County Zoning Regulations.

An affirmative vote of the BoA requires a concurring vote of four (4) members.
