Our Mission

The Gloucester County Planning Department is committed to assisting the County in realizing its long-range planning goals and visions through a cooperative partnership with the community. We aspire to help people achieve their subdivision and development goals consistent with the community’s directives as set forth by the Gloucester County Planning Commission and Board of Supervisors.

Departmental staff also serves as staff to the County’s Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals. In addition, the Department of Planning and Zoning provides input on other areas, such as floodplain management, capital improvements, and recreational planning.
