OUTDOOR FEATURES

Outdoor living has become very popular and we get many questions about what can and can’t be done in a yard. Please call us with your situation and ideas so we can discuss.

In general here are some guidelines:

Fireplaces -  Burning of trash is never allowed. Residential enclosed outdoor firepits are permitted  subject to their not being a safety hazard or a nuisance to your neighbors.

Basketball and tennis courts -  Must comply with zoning requirements and may require stormwater management.

Cooking stations and fireplaces that are built-in (can not be moved) are structures and must comply with zoning requirements. 

Other areas of interest include:

 The information provided in this guide is intended only to assist individuals in understanding the code requirements. It is not a complete recitation of the code. Property owners should consult the Doylestown Borough Code of Ordinance
