Uses permitted with a use permit include:

     A.  In all designations, a single-family residence and appurtenant structures where denial of such would otherwise substantially deny all reasonable use of the parcel and where such development will be sited and designed to prevent impacts which would significantly degrade the environmentally sensitive habitat area, except that where a transfer of development credit or system has been adopted as part of this title, no residential development shall be permitted.
