Zoning Ordinance Information

The Lexington County Zoning Office is responsible for reviewing new zoning applications, assisting with requests for zoning map amendments and variances, responding to complaints of zoning violations, and answering citizen inquiries.

Zoning ordinances in Lexington County were enacted in 1976 by County Council (and amended many times since) to promote public health, safety, morals, convenience, order, prosperity, and general welfare of the citizens of Lexington County. These ordinances protect both the property owner’s interest in their own property as well as the neighboring properties. Zoning ordinances are a way to safeguard the interests of the residents and property owners in Lexington County.
