COVID-19 Update

The Planning Department at Chatham Mills is open for the following limited services: Permitting and Planning submittals only. Public hours at this facility will be Monday - Friday from 8:30 AM to 5 PM. Although walk-in customers are accepted, the Town highly encourages residents to continue to utilize our online services and mailing submittals when possible. Please call and let us know if you need to make arrangements to drop off submittals. 


The Planning Department administers all zoning and subdivision regulations for all property within the Town's planning jurisdiction, which includes the corporate (town) limits as well as the extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ).  The Planning Department continues to work with the public, the Planning Board, and the Board of Commissioners to update development standards for our community to assure quality growth.  These efforts seek to ensure that Pittsboro maintains its character, sense of place, and life-quality attributes that make it such an attractive place to live and work.  

How to Find A Property's Zoning

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.
