Zoning Ordinances


The Loudoun County Zoning Ordinance defines and implements land use and design standards. The Zoning Ordinance:  

  • Provides details relevant to each specific zoning district
  • Guidelines for the subdivision of land (minimum parcel size, yard requirements, etc.)
  • Permitted and special exception uses
  • Additional development requirements 

The Zoning Ordinance does not apply to properties within the seven incorporated towns. Each town has its own Zoning Ordinance. Also, HOA covenants may place additional restrictions on possible uses.

Zoning Ordinance Rewrite

In September 2019, the Board of Supervisors voted to comprehensively revise and/or replace the Revised 1993 Loudoun County Zoning Ordinance to implement the Loudoun County 2019 General Plan.
