The Board hears requests from property owners who propose construction or land improvements which cannot conform to the established zoning regulations. Requests for a “zoning variance” are only to be approved in accordance with the criteria established by the state of Pennsylvania. The Zoning Hearing Board is a “quasi-judicial body” and the decisions rendered by the Board are binding. Zoning Hearing Board decisions must be appealed to the PA Common Pleas Court.
