Planning Commission

​​​​The Planning Commission is an 11-member body, appointed by the City Council, responsible for the review of land use and zoning matters for the City of Virginia Beach.​

The Planning Commission reviews applications submitted for changes to zoning districts, conditional use permits, street closures, zoning ordinance and plan amendments, and other land use and zoning matters. The Commission makes a recommendation on each item to City Council, who then makes the final determination on the recommended items during one of their regular meetings.

The Commission is supported by the Planning Director and the Planning Department staff. The Director and staff review each submitted item and make a recommendation to the Planning Commission as to whether or not the request is consistent with the policies, plans, and ordinances of the City of Virginia Beach.
