LDSnet

LDSnet provides access to information in the Fairfax County Land Development System (LDS). LDSnet is comprised of two systems: the Zoning and Planning System (ZAPS) and the Plans and Waivers System (PAWS). Through LDSnet, it is possible to search for individual zoning applications and/or plans and studies submitted to the County to perform land-disturbing activities. In addition, the LDS database can be searched for zoning applications or construction plan submissions meeting any combination of the thirty-one search criteria.

For information and tips on conducting ZAPS and PAWS searches, and definitions of terms, visit the ZAPS Overview and PAWS Overview pages.
