We are responsible for guiding and regulating Chesterfield County’s long- and short-term development for the benefit of present and future generations.

We manage the county’s comprehensive planning and development review processes. These include:

  • Site plan
  • Subdivision
  • Zoning

Other important department functions include:

  • General planning assistance for the public
  • Growth and development trends analysis
  • Inspections for zoning code compliance

We make recommendations on many of these matters to the Board of Supervisors, Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals.
