The Commonwealth of Virginia requires local jurisdictions to prepare and adopt a comprehensive plan to be reviewed at least once every five years. A comprehensive plan takes into account the various trends affecting the physical development of the land within the jurisdiction. It is intended to be the mechanism for anticipating and dealing with change in the County over time, and in our case we have chosen fifteen years as the period of focus for the plan. It articulates policies, and establishes goals and objectives to influence development in both the private and public sectors.

A comprehensive plan is implemented in large part by the zoning and subdivision ordinances of the locality, as well as by capital improvement spending on public projects. The Code of Virginia, (VA. CODE ANN. §15.2-2223) states that "The comprehensive plan shall be made with the purpose of guiding and accomplishing a coordinated, adjusted, and harmonious development of the territory which will, in accordance with present and probable future needs and resources, best promote the health, safety morals, order, convenience, prosperity, and general welfare of the inhabitants."

The Campbell County Comprehensive Plan can be amended as needed by the Board of Supervisors, following a public hearing and a recommendation by the Planning Commission. The County is committed to maintaining its comprehensive plan as a functional document that accurately represents the community’s vision of the future.

On December 2, 2014, the Campbell County Board of Supervisors approved the 2014 - 2029 Comprehensive Plan. The Department of Community Development thanks citizens for their input over recent months and has provided the adopted plan in PDF for residents' reference and convenience.
