This means that a property owner or developer can obtain all of the necessary land use approvals from one body, creating a coordinated, streamlined process.

Establish zoning districts and regulations; provide for the manner of enforcement of regulations; hear and decide on site plans, special exceptions or special permits for development.
Adopt wetlands/watercourse boundaries and regulations; hear and decide on applications for work involving regulated activities in wetlands or watercourses; hear and decide on petitions to change regulations or boundaries.
Adopt and implement regulations to protect Manchester's groundwater supply; inventory and register existing regulated facilities in Aquifer Protection Areas; hear and decide on applications for new regulated activities.
