Loudoun County is implementing new fees on July 1, 2022, for building and development applications. Applicants are encouraged to pay any outstanding fees by close of business on June 30, 2022. Payments for outstanding fees that are not submitted by June 30, 2022, will require a new invoice to be issued using the updated fee schedule and could result in a processing delay.
The fee changes will apply to land development applications, erosion and sediment/land disturbance applications, Virginia Stormwater Management Program (VSMP) applications, building and trade permits, plans review, and code inspections. The fee changes will not apply to zoning applications.
The fees the county collects for land development and building permit applications are intended to recover the costs of the services rendered by the county, taking into consideration the time, skill and expense involved. While fees for some applications are increasing, efficiencies gained in processing times for some applications resulted in no change to the fee or a lower fee. The current and new fee schedules are available online here.
On July 14, 2021, the Board of Supervisors voted to amend Chapters 1096, 1220 and 1410 of the Codified Ordinances of Loudoun County (PDF) and the Loudoun County Land Subdivision and Development Ordinance (PDF) to adopt new fee schedules. These fees were last updated in 2008 and 2014.
