Land Development

About the Process

Once you have made a decision to build within the city limits of Chamblee, you should contact the Planning and Development Department to verify that the property's current zoning will support the type of development you are planning to build, and to set up an appointment for a pre-application meeting to discuss your plans with staff. If your project requires the property to be re-zoned or any variances to the UDO, or if it qualifies as a Development of Community Impact (DCI), you will need to go through the appropriate planning process prior to beginning the development process.


The Planning and Development Department is responsible for review and approval of all preliminary plats, final plats, site plans, subdivision plans, and as-builts for commercial and residential developments to ensure code compliance. We also review and approve erosion, performance and maintenance bonds required by code.
