Board of Zoning Appeals

P&Z Home >Boards and Commissions >Board of Zoning Appeals

 

Isle of Wight County adopted the first Zoning Ordinance in 1970 along with the creation of the Board of Zoning Appeals. The purpose of the Zoning Ordinance is to implement the Isle of Wight County Comprehensive Plan and promote and protect the health, safety, and general welfare of the present and future residences and businesses of the county.

The Board of Zoning Appeals is the body established under state law to provide relief in special cases where the strict application of the Zoning Ordinance would produce undue hardship to a landowner.  The Board’s function is to hear and decide upon the interpretation and the application of the provisions of the Zoning Ordnance in these cases. Prior to hearing on an application, public notice is required in the local newspapers and notification is sent to the adjacent property owners regarding the request. When the Board determines that circumstances warrant favorable consideration, specific requirements of the Zoning Ordinance are relaxed.

Any person aggrieved by a decision of the Board of Zoning Appeals may present a petition  to the Circuit Court of the County within thirty (30) days after the final decision by the Board of Zoning Appeals.

You can learn more about the Board of Zoning Appeals on the Information Sheet.
