Notice Requirements

Other land use applications, such as boundary line adjustments, site plans and subdivisions, are reviewed in the Department of Building and Development.

Timeline Extensions

When two or more applications are processed concurrently, the longer timeline is followed. It is common for an application timeline to be extended for many reasons, including the applicant's desire to continue work on issues, delays in applicant response, or the application is sent to a committee at either the Planning Commission or Board of Supervisors level of review. In any event, the applicant must grant the extension of time.

Additional Information

Information about specific land development applications may be found online through the Loudoun Online Land Applications system.
