Purusant to the Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Code (MPC), Act of 1968 every municipality which has enacted or enacts a zoning ordinance shall create a Zoning Hearing Board. The purpose of this board is to hear issues that require variance relief or special exception from requirements set forth in the zoning ordinance.

Metings are held at the township building, 721 W Kings Highway, Coatesville, PA commencing at 7:00pm unless otherwise noted below:
