Bedminster Land Use Board Approves Use Variance Amidst Controversy Over Property’s Legal Status

Overview: The Bedminster Land Use Board recently approved a use variance for a property that has been the center of a zoning dispute. The approval allows the continuance of a two-family dwelling in the VN2 Restricted Village Neighborhood District, despite the area’s zoning regulations that typically do not permit such use. The decision followed rigorous debate over the property’s history, the role of realtors, and the township’s enforcement actions.

Overview: In a recent Bedminster Land Use Board meeting, members engaged in discussions over the use variance for a property on Lamington Road, proposed to be converted into two residential apartments. The meeting, chaired by Mayor Lawrence F. Jacobs, was marked by debates on zoning compliance, historical preservation, and the impact of potential redevelopment on the local area. The property, with a history of both residential and commercial usage, is situated at the end of the active retail district and presents a unique challenge in balancing development with the maintenance of Bedminster’s historical character.

Overview: In a noteworthy move, the Bedminster Land Use Board appointed Carol Guttschall as the new Chairperson and Jeffrey Leonard as the Vice Chair for the year 2024. This decision was made during their recent meeting, which also covered a range of procedural matters and set the stage for upcoming land use applications.
