What is a land development?
A subdivision is one kind of land development. Most kinds of construction are considered land development, and must be approved by the process provided for in the Township’s Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance. Significantly, the construction of a single house on an existing lot, the construction of an addition to an existing house, and the construction of an accessory structure (such as a garden shed, detached garage, or swimming pool) on a residential lot are not considered types of land development, so these activities are exempt from this process.
