Variance is an administrative or discretionary action typically carried out by a local municipality’s designated governing body to allow a condition that isn’t explicitly permitted by the code to continue. A variance can be granted to allow a setback reduction, to allow a greater density than what’s permitted in a zoning district, or to allow a reduction in required off-street parking spaces.
