(See below for a PDF version of the application.)

The Zoning Division of the Planning Dept. is charged with the enforcement of the Montgomery Township Land Development Ordinance (LDO) and resolutions of the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Adjustment. This enforcement is done in cooperation with all other Township Departments.

Zoning reviews building permits prior to their review by the Construction Department.

We also review and issue permits for projects, which do not necessarily require building permits, including but not limited to:

  • Fences
  • Sheds less than 200 s.f.
  • On-grade patios
  • Walkways
  • Driveway expansion
  • Temporary signs
  • Sidewalk sales

All applications to the Planning and Zoning Boards are reviewed prior to hearings. Zoning is also the source of information for any questions citizens and interested parties may have about the Land Development Ordinance or resolutions. The Zoning Officer is authorized to interpret the LDO, although the Zoning Board of Adjustment can overrule the Zoning Officer’s interpretation if an application is made to the Board and a compelling argument is presented.
