The Planning & Zoning Department is responsible for managing the physical growth of the unincorporated area of the County. The regulations used to manage the County are found in the Lawrence County Comprehensive Plan, the Lawrence County Zoning Ordinances and the Lawrence County Subdivision Regulations.

The Lawrence County Comprehensive Plan is the official document used to guide decisions on land use matters. The comprehensive plan is designed to anticipate and deal constructively with changes occurring within the County. The Lawrence County Zoning Ordinances and the Subdivision Regulations are specific documents to be used in conjunction with the Comprehensive Plan.  

The County Commissioners adopt land use plans and ordinances after recommendations are received from the Planning & Zoning Board. The Planning & Zoning Board consists of one County Commissioner and six citizen members appointed by the Commission to five year terms. The Planning & Zoning Board meets once a month to consider land use matters such as rezonings, Conditional Use Permits, Plats and other matters. The Planning Department staff provides research and technical support to the Commission and Board to assist in the decision making process.

Duties of this department include, but are not limited to:

  • Building Permit Applications
  • Building Inspection
  • Contractor Licensing
  • Occupancy Permits
  • Flood Plain Administration
  • Land Use Applications
  • Zoning Enforcement
  • Septic Systems
  • Plats
  • Zoning Compliance
  • Signage
