How much land do I need in order to build a house?

Appomattox County consists of several different zoning districts. Each district has different qualifications on dividing land and setbacks from property lines and other structures.

Please contact our office via email or by calling 434-352-8183 to inquire on the zoning of your property. A tax map number or an address will be required in order for us to look up this information for you.
