Zoning Hearing Board

The Borough of Ambler’s Zoning Hearing Board considers whether to grant relief from borough zoning ordinances regulating the use of land, when an applicant wishes to make use of a parcel in a certain way, that by a strict reading of the zoning ordinance, is not permitted. The board also decides whether certain criteria have been met to allow certain types of special exceptions to be made to zoning ordinances.

The board also considers appeals from rulings made by the code officer in enforcing zoning-related ordinances.
