An approval letter from the POA must be provided to the County at time of application for building permit. To verify your property’s zoning classification, please visit the Rockingham County GIS Map.
If the property is located within town limits, the town will administer all zoning requirements and related regulations, prior to application. To determine if your property is located within a town, please visit Rockingham County’s GIS Map.
