Residential Construction

Most of the construction in Laurel Park is for Single Family Houses or additions/renovations of existing homes. To begin, identify the zoning district of the property - this can be done via the online Henderson County's GIS Mapping system or by calling Town Hall. NOTE - there are several larger residential developments in Town, including Somersby Park and Shaws Creek Farm, which were approved with different requirements. 

Appointments are required to meet with the Zoning Administrator. This includes but is not limited to applying for a permit, asking detailed questions regarding a project, or plan review.


New Zoning Standards as of August 2021

In August, the Town's Unified Development Ordinance went into effect. Prior to applying for a Certificate of Zoning Compliance with Laurel Park, which is needed before you can receive a Building Permit from Henderson County, a fully engineered stormwater management plan may be required along with a landscaping plan. Sections 2 & 3 of the UDO provide more information. Before scheduling a meeting with the zoning administrator please have as much information as possible (note, not required but helpful):

  • a current survey of the property 
  • the average slope of the property
  • a site plan of the home in relation to the rest of the lot
  • building elevations
  • locations of septic fields
