Zoning Administration

The Zoning Division administers and enforces the provisions and regulations of the Loudoun County Zoning Ordinances. Staff reviews development plans / projects within the county to ensure compliance with the governing zoning ordinance and any applicable proffers or conditions of approval. The Zoning Ordinance outlines all the zoning districts and special overlay areas within the county, and provides details relevant to each specific zoning district, such as but not limited to, guidelines for the subdivision of land (minimum parcel size, yard requirements, etc.), permitted and special exception uses, and correlating additional development requirements.

The Zoning Ordinance is a mechanism for the implementation of the provisions of the comprehensive plan and has been established in order to ensure consistent and efficient land use throughout the county.  The Zoning Enforcement Team strives to make sure properties within the county are in conformity with the Zoning Ordinances and specific chapters of the Virginia Maintenance Code that have been adopted by the Board of Supervisors.

Links to the zoning ordinances and zoning forms, can be located on the Codes and Ordinances page. You may also call any of the phone numbers below for information.
