Zoning Ordinances

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.
