Manchester has a combined planning and zoning commission. It has also been designated the Inland Wetlands Agency and the Aquifer Protection Agency. This means that a property owner or developer can obtain all of the necessary land use approvals from on body, creating a coordinated, streamlined process.
Planning Commission: Prepare and adopt the plan of conservation and development; review and make recommendations on proposed municipal improvements; establish regulations for subdivision of land; hear and decide on applications for the subdivision of land.
Zoning Commission: Establish zoning districts and regulations; provide for the manner of enforcement of regulations; hear and decide on site plans, special exceptions or special permits for development.
Inland Wetlands and Watercourses Agency: Adopt wetlands/watercourse boundaries and regulations; hear and decide on applications for work involving regulated activities in wetlands or watercourses; hear and decide on petitions to change regulations or boundaries.
Aquifer Protection Agency: Adopt and implement regulations to protect Manchester's groundwater supply; inventory and register existing regulated facilities in Aquifer Protection Areas; hear and decide on applications for new regulated activities.
