About Us

The Bucks County Planning Commission (BCPC), an advisory board to the county commissioners, consists of nine appointed members and a staff of 30 employees. The BCPC board members serves without compensation and provide guidance and advice on planning and land use issues. They meet the first Wednesday of every month to transact the business of the commission. State laws, including the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (Act 247) and the Sewage Facilities Planning Act (Act 537), require that county planning commissions review plans of proposed development and sewage facilities. Other state-mandated activities include stormwater management planning for the county's watersheds.

The planning commission is also responsible for Open Space and Agricultural Preservation Programs, recycling programs, and census information.
