What does the Planning Board do?

The Littleton Planning Board reviews applications for commercial and residential development and redevelopment. The Planning Board is responsible for developing and reviewing zoning proposals, reviewing land development applications, and the Local Comprehensive Plan (Master Plan). The Littleton Planning Board holds public hearings on land subdivisions and certain development applications as well as zoning changes. For zoning changes, the Planning Board makes recommendations to Town Meetings.

The Littleton Planning Board also schedules "informal discussions" regarding development plans at Planning Board meetings, to provide input and advice to potential applicants, prior to the formal application process. There is no charge for an "informal discussion"; please contact the Planning Board office to schedule this on an upcoming Planning Board agenda.
