The Planning Division of the Department of Community and Economic Development is responsible for the review and approval of all minor and major subdivisions. This includes lot splits less than 5 acres, replats of platted subdivisions, and 5-acre subdivisions.  Planning staff is also responsible for providing support to the Clermont County Planning Commission. This includes providing staff reports on all zone change requests from townships, requests for changes to township zoning resolutions, and new major subdivisions.

For all township zoning matters, the Clermont County Planning Commission provides a recommendation to the local zoning commission and board of trustees. The Planning Commission is not an approving authority.

For subdivisions, the Clermont County Planning Commission is the approving authority as it relates to the Clermont County Subdivision Regulations.

Here you can find the Clermont County Subdivision Regulations, Township Zoning contacts, and information about our County Planning Commission.
