Land Development

Land DevelopmentThe Land Development division is responsible for the day-to-day administration of the Zoning Code for Planned Unit Development Overlay districts, Institutional Overlay districts and Specific Plan districts, and Subdivision Regulations for Nashville and Davidson County (excluding the cities of Belle Meade, Berry Hill, Forest Hills, Goodlettsville, and Oak Hill).

These responsibilities also include assisting customers with requests to rezone property, subdivide land, modify recorded building setbacks, determine permitted uses on a property, and building permit sign-offs. Land Development also works with customers on ways to correct a zoning violation.

The Land Development division uses the Zoning Code, Subdivision Regulations, and the General Plan, including the fourteen Community Plans, and the Major and Collector Street Plan, in completing reviews and making recommendations to the Planning Commission on applications submitted for review.

If you have questions about specific properties, contact the Planning Department front counter at or 615-862-7190.
