This chapter is adopted for the following purposes:

[Ord. 428, 12/11/1991, § 104]

Where, because of peculiar conditions, a literal enforcement of this chapter would exact undue hardship pertaining to the land in question, the Borough Council may grant a modification thereto, provided such modification is not contrary to the public interest; and, provided further; that the purpose and intent of this chapter is observed.
2. 
For purposes of encouraging flexibility, economy and ingenuity in subdivision and land developments and where a literal enforcement of this chapter would result in undue hardship, or be contrary to demonstrated modern and evolving principles of site planning and development, the Borough Council may, after application to, and review and recommendation by the Planning Commission, make such reasonable exceptions to the effects of this chapter as will not be contrary to the public interest; as will not be contrary to the purpose and intent of this chapter; which will be in accord with sound planning practices; and which will provide for equal or better results. In making such exceptions, the Council may impose reasonable conditions and obligations upon the applicant necessary to insure that the objectives of this chapter are met.

[Ord. 428, 12/11/1991, § 106]
The grant of a permit or approval of a subdivision and/or land development plan shall not constitute a representation, guarantee, or warranty of any kind by the Borough or by any official, agent or employee thereof as to the advisability or practicability of the proposed use nor shall any such approval represent any guarantee or warranty as to the accuracy of the information provided by a developer. Approval of a plan shall create no liability upon the Borough, its officials, agents or employees.
