Planning Division Ordinances

The Zoning Ordinance governs the use of one’s property. The range of uses and structures allowed differ from zone to zone, e.g. commercial verses residential zones. The Ventura County Zoning Ordinance is divided into the Coastal Zoning Ordinance for coastal areas and the Non-Coastal Zoning Ordinance that covers all areas outside the Coastal Zone. The two codes are structured in parallel, but differ in many substantive ways. In addition to the Zoning Ordinance, the Subdivision Ordinance is designed to regulate and control subdivisions of land.
