Planning and Zoning

Welcome to Planning and Zoning!

The Department of Planning and Zoning strives to provide courteous, consistent and dependable public service to each citizen.

On June 10, 2024 our Central Permitting office launched a new permitting software, OpenGov. OpenGov replaces traditional paperwork application process and gives you the opportunity to submit requests through a fully automated system. Upload plans, schedule inspections, check on plan reviews, receive real time results and respond to comments from County staff.  Application, permit and re-inspection fees can also be made with a credit card or e-check through the secure OPenGov System. Our office is still accepting paper plans and we have a computer in the lobby to help you through the application process if you are unable to apply at home.

We are responsible for properly directing the commercial and residential growth in Isle of Wight County. We provide guidance, administration and coordination of the County’s efforts to properly manage growth through the Comprehensive Plan, Chesapeake Bay Act, land development regulations and community development initiatives. Our efforts help to foster positive, orderly development of the county’s land assets.

Our Office staff  provides a comprehensive range of land use information to the public. Staff also provides support to the Board of Supervisors, the Planning Commission, the Board of Zoning Appeals, and other agencies and County Departments.

You may contact us at or at 757-365-6211. Our address is 17140 Monument Circle, Suite 101, Isle of Wight VA 23397. We are in Building B which is the 2-story brick building across from the Historic Boykins Tavern.
