Rezone My Property

A rezoning may be required to accommodate a proposed project. Rezoning descisions are based on adopted plans, surounding land use, and development conditions. Some properties may be rezoned to a general use zoning district, while others may require a conditional zoning district. In addition, some uses must obtain a conditional use permit to operate in the City of Gastonia. Use permits enable the City to review and control the location of uses that might have a detrimental impact on other nearby businesses or residents.
Applications may be submitted by any interested party for general use zones. For a conditional zone or conditional use permit, an application can only be received from the property owner or an authorized agent. Rezonings and conditional use permits require a public hearing before the Gastonia Planning Commission. A particular case may be heard by the Gastonia City Council if the Planning Commision vote is appealed, or if the desicion is by less than a 3/4 vote.
Applicants are highly encouraged to contact Planning staff to discuss a potential rezoning prior to filling out the application.  For more information, see the Gastonia Planning Commission Quick Links section to the right.
The Planning Department is located at Garland Municipal Business Center at 150 S. York Street on the second floor.
