Amended through June 8, 2017

Please Note: This document is updated periodically. The official Subdivision Ordinance with all the recently adopted amendments is maintained in the Zoning Office. Fauquier County is offering access to the Subdivision Ordinance on the Internet as a service to the public. We are unable to assist users of this service with legal questions nor respond to requests for legal advice or the application of the law to specific facts. Therefore, to understand and protect your legal rights, you should consult your own private lawyer. The Zoning and Development Services Division can respond to questions, for example, what are the options for division of a particular parcel of land, whether or not your property may be divided with a family transfer, or the timing of the review process.
