What can and cannot be built on a piece of property depends on how it is zoned. For every zoning district in the County, there are certain uses that are allowed as a matter of right, other uses that are allowed only with the approval of a Special Use Permit by the Board of Supervisors, and some uses that are not allowed. All rezoning and Special Use Permit applications are referred to the Planning Commission. Zoning stems largely from the Comprehensive Plan. Use the York County Property Information System to determine the zoning designation for a specific address and the Table of Land Uses to determine permissible uses.
