The short title by which this chapter shall be known shall be the "Zoning Ordinance of the Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills."
In their interpretation and application, the provisions of this chapter shall be held to be minimum requirements adopted for the promotion of the public health, safety, morals and general welfare. Among other purposes, the provisions of this chapter are intended to provide adequate light, air and convenience of access; to avoid undue concentration of population by regulating and limiting the use of land, the height and bulk of buildings wherever erected; to limit and determine the size of yards and other open spaces; to regulate the density of population; and to conserve the value of property and encourage the most appropriate use of land throughout the Township.
It is not intended by this chapter to repeal, abrogate, annul or in any way impair or interfere with existing provisions of other laws or ordinances, except those specifically repealed by this chapter or any private restrictions placed upon property by covenant, deed or other private agreement, unless repugnant thereto.
Where this chapter imposes a greater restriction upon the use of buildings and premises or upon the height of buildings or lot coverage or requires greater lot area or larger yards or other open spaces than are imposed or required by such rules, regulations or permits or by such private restrictions, the provisions of this chapter shall control.
The zoning power is contained in N.J.S.A. 40:55D-62 et seq.
