  • REQUIREMENTS FOR A VARIANCE REQUEST; - SEE SECTION 30 - SPRINGFIELD TOWNSHIP ZONING RESOLUTION The Board of Zoning Appeals may authorize upon appeal, in specific cases, such variance from the terms of the Zoning Resolution as will not be contrary to the public interest, where, owing to specific conditions, a literal enforcement of the Resolution will result in unnecessary hardship, and so that the spirit of the Resolution shall be observed and substantial justice done. The Board of Zoning Appeals shall consider the following: A. That due to exceptional narrowness, shallowness, or shape or exceptional topographic conditions or other extraordinary situation or condition of a lot, the strict application of the terms of this Resolution would result in peculiar and exceptional practical difficulties. B. That special circumstances or conditions applying to the building or land in question are peculiar to such lot or property and do not apply generally to other land or building in the vicinity. C. That a variance from the strict application is necessary to relieve such difficulties or hardship, and that such relief may be granted without substantial detriment to the public good and without substantially altering the intent of this Resolution. D. The granting of the application is necessary for the preservation and enjoyment of a substantial property right and not merely to serve as a convenience to the applicant. E. The condition from which relief or a variance sought did not result from action by the applicant. F. No variance may be applied for or granted which would allow a use that is not allowed in a zoning district. G. The authorization of a variance will not impair an adequate supply of light and air to adjacent property or unreasonably increase the congestion in public streets, or increase the danger of fire or imperil the public safety or unreasonably diminish or impair the health, safety, convenience or general welfare of the inhabitants of the Township.
