Petition for Change of Zoning/Conditional Use Permit
An application for a change of zoning or conditional use permit may be made by returning the application form and required
application submission information to the City of Newport News, Department of Planning, 2nd Floor, City Hall, 2400
Washington Avenue, Newport News, Virginia 23607 (Telephone: 757-926-8761).
Prior to ling an application, the applicant is required to contact the Department of Planning to arrange for a preliminary
review of his or her proposal. The purpose of the preliminary review is to establish what supporting information may be
required with the application.
APPLICATION DEADLINE
Completed application forms (TOGETHER WITH ALL REQUIRED SUBMISSIONS) must be returned to the Department
of Planning by the submission deadline indicated in the City Planning Commission Meeting/Deadline Schedule for the
current calendar year.
CONDITIONAL USE PERMIT
All property in the City is within one of many zoning districts. Each district allows an individual to make use of his or her
property in a manner permitted by the zoning district. Should a property owner desire to develop or redevelop land with a
use only permitted by a conditional use permit, the property owner must obtain approval from the City Council.
If the permit is approved, the individual will be limited to the requested use (and the uses allowed by the property’s exist-
ing zoning). In granting a conditional use permit, the City Council may impose reasonable conditions and safeguards on
the particular use to protect the surrounding area. Conditional Use Permits must be exercised within two years of City
Council approval, or they expire. Time extensions for permits may be granted by the City Council.
CHANGE OF ZONING
Whenever the public necessity or convenience, or general welfare, and good zoning practice requires, the city council
may, by ordinance, amend, supplement or change the regulations, zoning district boundaries or classications of property.
Any such amendment may be initiated by resolution by City Council; by motion of the Planning Commission; or by petition
submitted to the Director of Planning by the property owners or their agents.
A petition for a change of zoning may include and provide for the voluntary proffering in writing, by the owner, of reason-
able conditions that are in conformity with the comprehensive plan. The conditions will be in addition to those regulations
provided for the zoning district.
If no voluntary proffering is provided, please provide a signed unconditional proffer statement.
City of Newport News, Department of Planning, 2nd Floor, City Hall, 2400 Washington Avenue, Newport News, Virginia 23607 (Telephone: 757-926-8761)
