Legislative Land Use Review
All legislative land development cases including rezonings and special exceptions are handled by the Department of Planning and Zoning Legislative Land Use Review Division.
The Department of Planning and Zoning's Land Use Review team processes the following application types:
What Am I Required To Submit?
A complete application includes all of the minimum submission materials listed on these checklists.
Public Hearings for Applications
The County advertises public hearings for applications in the Loudoun Times Mirror. For public hearing dates and times see the View the Loudoun County Government Master Calendar.
The applicant is responsible for completing items relating to disclosures, property posting, notification of proper parties, and certification of notice. View more information and instructions.
Other land use applications, such as boundary line adjustments, site plans and subdivisions, are reviewed in the Department of Building and Development.
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.
Information about specific land development applications may be found online through the Loudoun Online Land Applications system.
