Zoning Board of Appeals


The Zoning Board of Appeals is a permit granting authority appointed by the Board of Selectmen and has all of the powers and duties prescribed under Chapter 40A of the Massachusetts General Laws, as amended and as allocated under Section 12 of the Zoning By-Laws of the Town of Wrentham.

The Board of Appeals may:

  • hear and decide applications for Variances with respect to land or structures,
  • hear and decide applications for Special Permits, and
  • hear and decide appeals from decisions of administrative officials of the town made under the Zoning By-laws

The Board of Appeals must act within the time constraints and specifications of the General Laws and the Zoning By-laws. The Board of Appeals may impose conditions, safeguards, and/or limitations as part of its approval of any application.


Meetings of the Zoning Board of Appeals are normally held on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the second floor Town Hall Meeting Room.

If the meeting day is a public holiday, the Board will not meet on that day. These changes are posted with the Town Clerk's office on the second floor of the Town Hall at least 48 hours prior to the meeting.

All meetings are open to the public and all are welcome to attend.
