The Administrative Code for Land Development and corresponding LDC Amendments

Collier County’s Land Development Code (LDC) is the principal regulatory tool for implementing the County’s Growth Management Plan (GMP).  The LDC contains the standards and criteria that development must meet in the County.

To ensure that all growth meets these standards, there are specific approval procedures for the various forms of development, ranging from simple, single-lot residences to large, multi-phased planned developments.  The Administrative Code for Land Development, hereafter referred to as the Administrative Code, consolidates and identifies the procedures for approval to develop under the LDC.  

The Administrative Code is divided into 14 chapters. Each chapter comprises a genre of land use petitions or permits. Each chapter is organized alphabetically to provide for ease of use.  The Table of Contents, beginning on page 2, provides a hyperlink to each section.

Administrative Code Version 1.3 is the “core” version and contains many, but not all, applications for land use activities in the County.  Additional applications may be found on the Collier County Zoning & Land Use Applications webpage.

The Administrative Code for Land Development (established by Ordinance 2013-57) and corresponding LDC amendments were adopted by the Board of County Commissioners on Tuesday, September 24, 2013 and became effective on Wednesday, October 2, 2013. The Administrative Code was amended, by Resolution 2016-168, on Tuesday, September 13, 2016.
