Zoning & Subdivision

The Land Use Administration (LUA) section of the Planning and Development Services Department reviews and processes applications for:

  • Major and minor subdivisions
  • Planning Board review items
  • Rezoning
  • Special Use Permits (requiring elected body approval)
  • Unified Development Ordinances (UDO) text amendments

We also maintain an inventory of topographic maps, zoning maps, and aerial photographs (current and historic). If you are planning to develop land in Winston-Salem or Forsyth County, you can contact the LUA team to discuss your request.
