Comprehensive Plan
The purpose of the Comprehensive Plan is to guide and accomplish a coordinated, adjusted and harmonious development of the county which will, in accordance with present and probable future needs and resources, best promote the health, safety, morals, order, convenience, prosperity and general welfare of the inhabitants, including the elderly and persons with disabilities. Charlotte County's current Comprehensive Plan was updated in 2011 and was officially adopted by the Board of Supervisors on November 15, 2011. 

The Planning Commission completed their five year review of the Comprehensive Plan in November 2016 in accordance with Virginia State Code §15.2-2230.  The Charlotte County Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing on Tuesday, February 14th, 2017, at 1:35 pm, to receive public comment regarding the proposed, updated Charlotte County Comprehensive Plan.  This public hearing will be held in the boardroom of the County Administration Office, 250 LeGrande Avenue, Suite A, Charlotte Court House, Virginia.  The proposed Comprehensive Plan can be reviewed here.  Hardcopies can also be reviewed at the County Administration Office.  The Board of Supervisors may act on the Comprehensive Plan immediately after the public hearing.
