The purpose of this article XI is to establish procedures for approving PRD developments in the R-5 zoning district in order to comply with the provisions of the Fair Housing Act, L. 1985, c. 222, and the regulations of the New Jersey Council on Affordable Housing ("COAH"). The regulations and controls contained in this article shall be interpreted to assure the construction of lower income housing which meets the standards and guidelines set forth in Mount Laurel II. Any provisions of any other ordinances or Articles in conflict with this article XI and which impose restrictions or limitations not related to health and safety shall be inapplicable to developments under this article.
It is also the intent of this article to provide a realistic opportunity for the construction of a variety of housing types and income levels in the Township, including housing for lower income households; and to encourage the development of such lower income housing, and other housing, by providing specific land use regulations addressing those needs. These regulations are designed to meet the mandate of Mount Laurel II.
