Iredell County Development Services

Planning Division


Our mission is to protect and promote the health, safety, and general welfare of our citizens through the implementation of sustainable land use and planning principles, sound administration of the 2030 Horizon Plan and enforcement of the Iredell County Land Development Code


The award-winning Iredell County Planning Division has a staff of ten (10) professionals who provide public services related to land development activities.  Functions of the department include current and long-range planning, subdivision of property, sedimentation and erosion control, Geographic Information System (GIS) analysis, and multimodal transportation efforts.  Department employees also serve as staff support and technical advisors to the Iredell County Board of Commissioners as well as several other Iredell County boards, including the Planning Board, Board of Adjustment, and Farmland Preservation Board. 

The Department predominantly serves citizens and enforces land development regulations within the unincorporated areas of the county not located within a town or city.  However, staff in the department proactively engages with each municipality within Iredell County as well as numerous other counties, cities, and agencies within this region of the State to ensure that Iredell County citizens and officials are represented in efforts that may affect the county.
