This volunteer Board is comprised of seven regular members and two alternates who are predominantly responsible for considering and deciding variance requests to the Township’s Land Development Ordinance (LDO) and the State's Land Use Law.  More specifically, the statutory functions and powers of the Board are 1) to render decisions on applications for bulk variances; 2) to render decisions on applications for use variances; 3) to interpret the Municipal Zoning Map and the LDO; 4) to render decisions on appeals regarding the Zoning Officer's decision; and 5) to decide requests for a determination of pre-existing, non-conforming use status.  The most common bulk variance applications involve additions to existing residences and the construction of new homes.  Bulk variance approval becomes necessary when a proposal does not meet criteria in the LDO (such as lot area or setbacks, for example).  A use variance application becomes necessary when the proposal is for a use that is not permitted in the zone.  Administrative assistance for the Board is through the Planning Department.
