Zoning is the process of dividing land in a municipality into zones in which certain land uses are permitted or prohibited. Through our zoning code sizes, setbacks and placement of the building are regulated. The type of zone determines whether planning permission for a given development is granted.
The City of South Fulton is in the process of rewriting the Zoning Ordinance previously referred to as the Zoning Resolution. The City’s goal is to develop a clear and user-friendly Zoning Ordinance that is consistent with adopted plans and policies, and reflects the changing environment. Emphasis will be placed on providing a more predictable set of land use regulations and improving the efficiency of the land development process.
