The Zoning Division is within the Building Division, as the Town Building Inspector serves as the code enforcement officer. If you are looking for relief from a provision within the Town Code, you must make an appeal to the New Castle Zoning Board of Appeals.
The Zoning Board of Appeals reviews specific actions taken by town officials, the building inspector or code enforcement officer, and residents and may grant variances – such as building setbacks and lot size, use variances, and special use permits according to board jurisdiction. An appeal may also be made to the Zoning Board for an interpretation of specific code language based on a decision of a town official. You must appear in person or by agent or attorney. Applications can be obtained from this website or in the Building Department at Town Hall which is located at 200 S. Greeley Avenue, Chappaqua, NY 10514. All applicants are required to meet with the Building Inspector, William Maskiell for a preliminary review of their completed application, in order to be placed on the agenda.
For additional information or questions contact the Zoning Board Secretary Lori Anderson at (914) 238-4725.
