Zoning Board Of Appeals


The Zoning Board of Appeals renders decisions on Appeals, Special Permits and Variances. An applicant pays a fee and submits an application stating his conflict with the local Zoning Laws.

A hearing is set up and in conformance with the Zoning Act - (MGL. Ch.40A); this action often comes about when denied a building permit by the Building Inspector.

A Zoning Hearing Board has little discretion, as its actions are circumscribed by the Town’s Zoning Code. The Board must take into consideration the health, safety, morals and welfare of the community in making its decision.
