Zoning Division on-line Portal –

The Zoning Division is responsible for, among many things, reviewing applications for property improvements, issuing CCOs for every sale or rental, as well as complaints regarding residential property maintenance (high grass, unmaintained pools, broken fences, etc.).

Many questions are property-specific, requiring an internal technical review before a response can be given. For this purpose, we have established a separate portal via the Township website for residents to pose these property-specific questions electronically using the link above or ‘Zoning Permits & Online Portal’ on the Township Quick Links & Actions section of the homepage. Internally, these requests will be coded, tracked and monitored separately by the necessary technical staff to ensure an organized process and timely response.  When entering inquiries of this nature, please choose Comments Type = “Zoning”.  Note that you can also report residential property maintenance complaints in this portal (choose Comments Type = “Property Maintenance”).

Licenses and Permits - Inspections – Interior inspections will utilize COVID-19 Inspection Protocols. Prior to any inspections being scheduled, a risk assessment will be completed to ensure proper safety measures are in place for the protection of residents, contractors and inspectors. Inspections associated with emergencies such as septic or water, unoccupied structures and outdoor facilities continue to be accommodated. If questions, contact the Department of Community Development at 732 536-0200 x1800 or .
