The Planning Department is responsible for the management of various land use programs within the unincorporated areas of Denton County. This includes the federally mandated National Flood Insurance Program including permitting, water quality and quantity and program compliance, the Denton County Subdivision Rules and Regulations and developers compliance with County regulations, and the Lake Ray Roberts Land Use Ordinance enforcement and its zoning cases. We are continually working to improve development of our database framework to tie together all parts of Planning & Engineering for real time distribution of Development Permits, Storm Water Permits, Subdivisions and Real Property, and Lake Ray Roberts Zoning issues on the Landmark Internet Mapping Site. Existing databases are critical and are a high priority to this department, other County departments and the public. Future development of the Web based data will include all permits and inspections to better serve the Public and other County offices.

Please e-mail all Development Permit questions or concerns to  Development Permits
