A shed under 200 square feet does not require a zoning permit from the township.  A shed 200 square feet and over requires a zoning permit from the township.  Any building over 1,000 square feet requires a zoning permit and a stormwater management permit.  All sheds/buildings regardless of whether a zoning permit is required or not is to abide by the setbacks required for that property's zoning area.
