How to Find a Property's Zoning District

The Chatham County Land Use and Planning Viewer is an interactive map. At the top left, enter your Address or Parcel ID and search. The Viewer should take you to the address/parcel entered and display your zoning district. Chatham County maintains this system and the information reflected is not guaranteed to be accurate.
