Legislative Land Use Application Procedure

Loudoun County has an administrative procedure for accepting and reviewing land use application materials in advance of Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission meetings.

This procedure is intended to ensure that applications are complete and available for sufficient review by the public, Board members and Planning Commissioners in advance of Board of Supervisors and Planning Commission meetings and also to allow county staff and the applicant adequate review and response time prior to distribution of meeting packets. View a schedule of application deadlines (PDF).


When Applications Do Not Meet the Published Schedule

When the schedule is not met, or amended materials are received after the meeting packet is distributed, staff reserves the right to recommend the following to the Board and Planning Commission leadership: 

  • Defer the application to a future Board or Planning Commission meeting 
  • Recommend that the action on the application be deferred to a future Board or Planning Commission meeting

Staff may make exceptions to this procedure for minor revisions to proffers such as notarization, signatures, numbering, pagination, typographical errors and other non-substantive changes. Similarly, staff may make exceptions to this procedure for minor revisions to special exception conditions of approval that do not affect the requested use or mitigation of impact.
