That the granting of the exception will not be materially detrimental to the public welfare or injurious to other property in the area in which said property is situated; and
That the granting of such exception will not be contrary to the Plans.
In granting any such exception, the Director shall designate the conditions under which the exception is granted.
The Director shall not grant any exceptions in violation of the SMA.
The standards and requirements of this Code and the Subdivision Regulations shall, where necessary, be modified by the Director where the Director finds such modifications are necessary to assure conformity to and achievement of the standards and goals of the Plans.
