Pennsylvania Municipal Planning Code establishes the basic legislation for a municipality in Pennsylvania to plan for community development through preparing a comprehensive plan and to govern such development through zoning and subdivision and land development ordinances.  This Act provides for the establishment of planning commissions and zoning hearing boards also.  The power and responsibility for land use lies exclusively with local government as outlined in this code.
