Seminole County DevelopmentWelcome!

Planning & Development is responsible for assisting customers to comply with the Seminole County Comprehensive Plan and the Seminole County Land Development Code and related ordinances through a managed review process. The Construction Inspection Team ensures that projects are constructed in compliance with all approvals including Development Orders and construction plans.

Staff processes applications for land use amendments, rezoning, commercial site plans, subdivision plans, vacates, variances, special exceptions, special use permits, excavation, fill permits and other miscellaneous permits.  The Division provides technical data and recommendations for land development proposals to the Board of County Commissioners, Planning and Zoning and the Board of Adjustment.
