District Council

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 George’s County.

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.
