Standards. Such special permits, however, may be authorized by the Planning Board only upon satisfaction in each instance of such conditions as to the general character, height and use of structure or structures; as to the provision of surrounding open space and the treatment of grounds; as to the general fitness of the structure or use to its proposed location; as to the provision for automobile parking or storage; and as to street capacity and use, which, in the opinion of the Planning Board, may be necessary to safeguard public health, comfort, convenience and as may be required for the preservation of the general character of the neighborhood in which such building and/or structure is to be placed or such use is to be conducted.
