Rezoning Process

The Gaston County Unified Development Ordinance is the complete set of adopted ordinances that define how property throughout the county can be used. Zoning ordinances specify whether zones can be used for residential or commercial purposes and regulate development standards.

Anyone wishing to rezone their property will need to schedule a meeting with staff.


Other Types of Rezoning:

  • Conditional Zoning District: Ultimately a conditional zoning district is a general rezoning but with added conditions. A request to have a property rezoned as a conditional district still goes through the rezoning process.

Things to Keep in Mind:

  • Rezoning Runs With the Property – Once a property is rezoned, the owner, and any futures owners, can pursue any use that is permitted under the new zoning district
