Loudoun’s Zoning Ordinance Update

Permanent Changes Made In The Zoning Ordinance Rewrite
Will Have Lasting Impacts on Loudoun’s Economy

Loudoun County has passed its first major milestone in the multi-year process of rewriting the Zoning laws that govern how the County will grow and create economic opportunity and a world class quality of life for its citizens into the future.

The Zoning Ordinance Rewrite process was intended to align Loudoun’s land development laws with the vision of the County’s 2019 Comprehensive Plan, and make our Zoning laws more consistent, modern and user-friendly.

But in the analysis of the Loudoun Chamber and other business organizations, the changes proposed by the County’s Zoning Ordinance Commission would make it harder, more expensive and more uncertain to do business in Loudoun County.

County staff heard from many of you in the Loudoun business community and the Loudoun Chamber is working hard to ensure that your comments are incorporated into the Draft ordinance.

The next Planning Commission Public Hearing will be held on July 26th at 6 p.m. at the Loudoun County Government Building.
