Pursuant to the Maryland Regional
District Act, the County Council, sitting as the District Council, has the
authority to review and decide zoning and land use matters for most of Prince
Subtitle 27 of the Prince George’s County Code or Zoning Ordinance, sets forth
specific procedures for filing, processing and final decision making on zoning
and land use matters. Additionally, the District Council Rules of Procedure
govern the process and procedure for public hearings on zoning and land use
matters before the District Council.
Persons or entities that wish to, improve, build
or develop land in Prince George's County must submit the appropriate zoning
and land use application to the Prince George's County Planning Department.
Every application follows a development review process from filing to final
decision, which may vary depending on the type or complexity of application.
The District Council exercises original and appellate jurisdiction over zoning
and land use cases and most cases decided by the District Council are appeals from
the Zoning Hearing Examiner or the Planning Board.
