Heidelberg Township requires driveway permits for new driveways and improvements to existing driveways on both Township and State Roads. A change of use also requires a driveway permit (ie. residential to commercial)
The Township Road Occupancy Permit ordinance reads in part:
No person, firm, corporation or other entity shall construct a new driveway,
change the use of the driveway, improve an existing driveway or any other means of
ingress or egress onto a Township road or a State road, or install storm drainage
facilities or affect the discharge or passage of drainage water onto or along a Township
road unless the Road Master or the Township representative appointed by the Board
of Supervisors, grants a permit for such grading, construction and installation. In the
case of access from a State road, two permits will be required. One from the State and
the other from the Township for construction from the road right-of-way line.
2. A permit application shall be signed by the property owner and submitted prior
to commencing work on any driveway. The application shall be on forms provided by the
Township. A construction plan in accordance with this Part and a filing fee and escrow
amount as established by resolution shall accompany the application. An approved
driveway application shall be valid for 1 year at which time if the work is not completed
No time extension will be granted. [Ord. 2010-1]
The ordinance in its entirety is attached to the Driveway Permit Application.
