What We Do

The Planning Board (The Board) is a volunteer board of citizens of Cheverly who are approved and appointed by The Town Council (The Council). The Board serves in an advisory role to The Council on various projects related to planning and development and other planning related matters affecting the Town of Cheverly that come before The Council. The Board also actively makes recommendations to The Council for planning and development matters that positively impact the citizens of Cheverly. Neither The Council nor The Board has control over zoning matters. Zoning issues are a county-level activity.

The Board meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 7:30 PM at Town Hall. Meetings are typically 90 minutes long and all meetings are open to the public. We encourage citizens to participate by attending these meetings and various countywide†hearings that impact our town. We also invite citizens to join The Board and add their†perspective on planning board issues.

Note: This board was preceded by the Cheverly Development Committee that functioned in the late 1980s & early 1990s.
