Planning Board Information

The Planning Board is an eleven member Board (includes two alternate members) who are responsible for generating and updating Oceanport's Master Plan. The Master Plan is a comprehensive plan intended to guide and control the current and long-range development and land use within the Town. The Board serves as a combined Planning and Zoning Board of Adjustment.

PLANNING BOARD APPROVAL

Planning Board approval is required prior to the subdivision of land within the Borough of Oceanport as well as for any development involving any new building other than one or two-family dwellings, any new addition to an existing building other than one or two-family dwellings, any change in use of an existing building, any new off-street parking area and any land disturbance involving an area of 1,000 square feet or more, including excavation, soil removal, land filling or site clearance. 

Since the Oceanport Planning Board serves as a combined Planning and Zoning Board of Adjustment pursuant to N.J.S.A. 40:55D-25c., application must also be made to the Planning Board for relief from the strict application of the zoning and land use ordinances of the Borough as well as appeals from the decision of the Borough's Zoning Officer.
