Planning & Inspections

Functions


The Planning & Inspections Department manages the land development and permitting processes of Nash County by assisting citizens and development professionals with specific projects, enforcing regulations, and advising policy boards in order to create a safe building environment that protects local property investments.

Transportation Planning for the region is performed by the Upper Coastal Plain Rural Planning Organization (www.ucprpo.org), which is housed in the Nash County Planning & Inspections Department. The RPO coordinates with NCDOT, local counties and towns, and consults with neighboring metropolitan transportation planning groups to develop plans for transportation projects and funding.

The department also performs a variety of special research projects and represents the County on intergovernmental projects and committees, such as the 2015 Nash Edgecombe Wilson Hazard Mitigation Plan, Twin Counties Visioning, and the Healthy Kids Collaborative (DEPC).
