Planning & Zoning Department

The Planning and Zoning Department administers the County's land use regulations. Department staff perform zoning and development review and serve as the first contact for developers and landowners who are considering new development or changes to existing development. Most importantly, the Planning and Zoning staff work alongside the community's citizens to create the long range goals, plans and strategies that shape the future of Northampton County.

GOALS

  1. Continue to expand upon GIS capability/functionality, particularly analytical features and investigate applicability to emergency management
  2. Ensure that the county's land use documents promote a safe, attractive and harmonious living
    environment for all its citizens
  3. Evaluate staffing requirements in view of current demand and demographic projections to provide efficient and timely service to residents and property owners
  4. Streamline permitting processes to the extent possible while adequately fulfilling
    state regulatory mandates.
