In 2008, Lansdowne Borough adopted a formed based Zoning Code. The purpose of this code is to have a more predictable building form versus one that relies on building uses, thus allowing for a more desirable physical form and purpose of properties on the Borough. Due to the additional requirements of the formed based Zoning code it is advisable before applying for a Zoning permit to talk to the Zoning Officer about your business venture or project. The zoning office can be reached at 610-623-7300 X 232 or emailed at LansdowneZoning@borough.lansdowne.pa.us for assistance.

- Have a Conversation with the Zoning Officer about your business venture or project.
