Planning and Land Use System (PLUS)

The Planning and Land Use System (PLUS) is a new multi-agency platform for Fairfax County customers to complete their zoning, building, permitting or other land development processes online. Through the PLUS platform, customers will create and submit applications online, pay fees, track application status, and receive electronic notifications. Customers and county staff will use PLUS to review applications and conduct searches. PLUS will serve as a unified source of information for industry and the general public, eliminating the silo-effect of different systems that cannot communicate with each other. All phases of PLUS for the Office of the Fire Marshal were launched on October 31, 2022.

PLUS can be used to track current applications, make changes to these applications or to start a new application.

Please Note: Microsoft Edge is the supported browser for PLUS.
