Prince William County Adopts Zoning Changes

January 13, 2005


The Prince William Board of County Supervisors adopted extensive updates to the county zoning regulations on December 21.  These changes will have significant impact for BC clients.  Some of the biggest changes include larger side setbacks for homes in planned mixed residential districts, and additional restrictions on construction near slopes and streams.  Another change to note is that the county is now requiring connections to the public water system for all new residential developments if there is access to the lines within 2,500 feet, even within semi-rural areas.


Additionally, the Board of Supervisors decided to begin updating the county's Design and Construction Standards Manual (DCSM).  This update means that developers can expect more changes in county regulations.
