Board of Zoning Appeals

The Board of Zoning Appeals (BZA) is a citizen board appointed by the Circuit Court to hear petition requests for special exceptions (which include temporary manufactured home requests and their renewals, private kennel requests, and one-chair beauty shop requests) and variance requests (which include height exception, no public road frontage exceptions and exceptions for lot width). The BZA also hears appeals from Planning director decisions regarding administrative variances or the interpretation of the zoning ordinance. View more information on how to petition or appeal to the BZA.


BZA meetings are held the first Wednesday of every month at 1 p.m. in the public meeting room located at 10001 Iron Bridge Road, Chesterfield, VA 23832. View the 2023 BZA meeting schedule (PDF).
