Variance and Appeals
Applicants may request an Area Variance when an aspect of a proposed development does not meet one or more requirements of the Zoning Resolution, such as setback, height, or other similar requirements. Applicants may request a Use Variance when a property cannot reasonably be used for any of the permitted or conditional uses allowed by the zoning district in which the property is located.
An administrative appeal to the BZA may be taken by any person aggrieved by a decision of the Zoning Inspector or by any administrative officer of the township in interpreting or applying the provisions of the zoning resolution. Such appeal shall be taken within twenty (20) days of the decision in question, by filing with the Zoning Inspector and with the BZA, a notice of appeal specifying the grounds thereof including applicable sections of the Concord Township Zoning Resolution.
Conditional Use Permit
Uses requiring conditional use permits have potentially greater effects on their surroundings than permitted uses and require additional scrutiny by the Board of Zoning Appeals to ensure that the use is appropriate for the location.
