Coronavirus updates are available on the Emergency Event Information Page.







In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Fauquier County Community Development continues to make the safety of our residents, customers, vendors, employees, and community its top priority. Although internal offices will remain closed to the public, we now offer drop-off and pick-up services in our main lobby.

Starting June 24, 2020 the 3rd floor lobby located in the courthouse at 29 Ashby St will be open to the public to drop off Building, Zoning, and other Land Development applications. Instructional signage, drop boxes, and a locked payment box are in place to help assist customers. 

In addition to lobby services, we continue to encourage our customers to take advantage of online permitting services and to utilize email and fax as much as possible. Additionally: 

We strongly encourage our customers to take advantage of our online payment option found here. Customers with questions are encouraged to email individual staff or whenever possible.

Fauquier County has suspended all non-essential travel for its employees and is not permitting participation in group meetings or events.  For more information about COVID-19, please visit the Center for Disease Control (CDC) , World Health Organization (WHO) , and Virginia Department of Health (VDH) websites.

Please see the Fauquier County COVID-19 Response Hub for updates on countywide efforts in response to the current public health concerns related to the COVID-19 virus.

Our “Community Helping Community” initiative gives local businesses a platform to share their services and offerings to the community during these trying times. Businesses and service-providers are encouraged to use the sign-up form to add their information to the County's interactive map for businesses and services.
