Planning and Zoning Commission

About the Commission:

The Planning and Zoning Commission (PZC) is empowered by state law and the Town of Andover Charter to act as a combined planning commission as well as a zoning commission. The commission acts with either legislative or executive authority based on the situation. When we write regulations, we are acting with our legislative power. When we review applications, we are acting with executive power. In other words, once we create a rule, we can’t deny an application that follows that rule, whether we like it or not. The inverse is also true in that we can’t approve an application that does not meet our rules. The PZC uses Attorney Mark Branse of Halloran and Sage for legal guidance in creating and interpreting regulations.

The commission is responsible for acting as a Planning agency for the town of Andover through the development of the Plan of Conservation and Development (POCD) well as review all Municipal land purchase and sales and major civic improvements to make sure they are consistent with planning objectives. The Commission creates laws that regulate how land is used in the Town of Andover. There are 2 primary documents, Zoning Regulations and Subdivision Regulations. When the commission is creating law, it is acting in a legislative capacity. The commission also reviews and determines compliance with those regulations through its executive power. The commission has 5 regular and 3 alternate members. The commission generally meets on the third Monday of each month.
