As used in this chapter, the following terms shall have the meanings indicated:
Any vehicle or structure so designed and constructed in such manner as will permit occupancy thereof as sleeping quarters for one or more persons or the conduct of any business or profession, occupation or trade, and so designed that it is or may be mounted on wheels and used as a conveyance on highways or streets, propelled or drawn by other motive power, excepting a device used exclusively upon stationary rails or tracks.
No person, persons, corporation or partnership owning any lot or tract of land within the Township of Alloway shall allow or permit any trailer to be located, parked, used, occupied, kept or maintained upon said lot or tract of land within the Township of Alloway except as provided in this chapter.
No person, persons, corporation or partnership shall use a trailer as herein defined for the purpose of storage of any item.
A trailer shall be permitted to be used temporarily in the following circumstances only:
A trailer used as a licensed recreational vehicle may be stored upon a residential lot, provided that the positioning, size and location of that trailer does not cause the trailer independently of or in conjunction with the residence upon such premises to be in violation of any Zoning Ordinance provision pertaining to lot coverage or front, rear or side line setback.[1]
Editor's Note: See Ch. 115, Zoning.
A trailer may be allowed upon a site whereon there is active construction of a nonresidential building, provided that such trailer shall be used only in connection with such building and shall not remain upon the premises for longer than two weeks past the completion of said building.
A trailer shall be permitted to be used for a period of no longer than one week in connection with a commercial sale being undertaken by a commercial enterprise, provided that such trailer is located upon the premises of such commercial enterprise operating the sale. This provision, however, shall not be used by a single commercial enterprise more frequently than three times per calendar year. In order to employ this exception, such commercial enterprise wishing permission to locate the trailer shall make application to the Township Clerk, giving the size of such trailer, the time during which such trailer shall be employed, the capacity amount of persons allowed to be in the trailer at any one time and such other facts as shall be needed to ascertain whether the use and location of such trailer will not offend the public good and welfare of the Township of Alloway. The Township Clerk shall not deny a license unless the public good and welfare of the Township of Alloway shall be violated. In making such judgment he may request reports from the Director of Public Safety and the fire commissioners of the district within which the trailer is planned to be located. The fee for said license shall be $25.
A trailer or trailers may be allowed upon premises when the said trailer is part of the equipment of any person, persons, corporation or partnership that is in the business of constructing residential and nonresidential buildings, provided that the use of the premises meets the requirements of the Zoning Ordinance of the Township of Alloway and that the said trailer is not used for storing materials.
In the case of disaster hardship only, for a maximum duration of six months.
