Welcome to the New Plan Conformance section
of the Highlands Council Website!

The Highlands Council has recently reorganized and updated information related to Plan Conformance found on this website. The previous single webpage has been replaced with a series of pages organized into content categories represented through navigation. Primary navigation can be found to the left, followed by secondary navigation on the right, and anchor links on individual pages where further organization is required. A Plan Conformance “site map” graphic is available below for additional reference. If you have difficulty finding anything, please contact the Highlands Council at highlands@highlands.nj.gov

What is Plan Conformance?

Plan Conformance includes the revision of local planning and regulatory documents to integrate the land use and resource management requirements of the Highlands Act so those documents will conform to the goals, requirements and provisions of the Regional Master Plan (RMP). Plan conformance is required by the Highlands Act throughout the Preservation Area and is voluntary in the Planning Area.
