 Zoning Hearing Board

As required by the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC), any community enacting a Zoning Ordinance must also create a Zoning Hearing Board. The primary purpose of such a board is to help assure fair and equitable application and administration of the Zoning Ordinance by hearing appeals on the Zoning Officer's determinations and by granting relief from the literal enforcement of the ordinance in certain hardship situations.
 
Since the board has no legislative power, it can neither make nor modify zoning policy. Neither does the Zoning Hearing Board have enforcement powers. It is a quasi-judicial body; that is, its powers are to some extent judicial in nature.
 
The board schedules hearings as needed on applications and appeals that come before it, takes evidence, and issues written decisions with findings of fact and conclusions of law. It must limit its scope of activities to those permitted by the MPC and by the local Zoning Ordinance.
 
Appeals before the Zoning Hearing Board reqiuire the applicant to pay a fee of $600.00
