(A) The minimum front yard requirements provided in § 603, shall be measured perpendicular to the street line and minimum side and rear yard requirements shall be measured perpendicular from side and rear lot lines, respectively. In the instance of a curved lot line, yard measurement shall be taken along a radial.
(B) (1) Lot frontage shall be measured along the street line between the side lot lines and shall not be less than the minimum lot width, as specified in § 603. Provided, however, the Planning Board may, in approving a subdivision, reduce the minimum lot frontage for a lot on a cul-de-sac to no less than 50 feet as provided in the Middletown Rules and Regulations Regarding the Subdivision and Development of Land.
(2) In the case of a corner lot, the minimum required lot frontage shall be provided on at least one abutting street but the total street frontages shall not be combined to calculate required lot frontage.
(C) Lot depth shall be measured from the mid-point of the lot frontage to the midpoint of the rear lot line. In the event of curved frontage, depth shall be measured from the midpoint of the lot frontage. In the case of a corner lot, depth shall be measured from the mid-point of the combined lot frontage of all streets. For lots where the front and rear lines are not parallel, the lot depth is an average of the depth.
(D) Lot width shall be the horizontal distance between the side lines of a lot measured at right angles to the lot depth line along a straight line parallel to the front lot line at the minimum front setback line.
(E) Rear lot width shall be measured along the line opposite and most distant from the front lot line, or in cases of a triangular or otherwise irregularly shaped lot, an assumed line at least ten feet in length, entirely within the lot, parallel to, and at a maximum distance from, the front lot line.
(F) Except in the case of a corner lot, as provided above, wherever a rear yard as defined herein is not possible, one side yard as designated may be considered as rear yard and conform with rear yard regulations as required in § 603.
(G) Where the location of a lot width or lot depth line or a front, side or rear yard is otherwise uncertain, the Zoning Officer shall determine their position in a manner complying as closely as possible with the requirements of this chapter.
