Zoning Enforcement Sections

While there are many causes of neighborhood deterioration, one important and preventable factor is the intrusion of illegal and objectionable uses. Vigorous zoning enforcement efforts can do much to prevent or arrest the spread of such uses and is an effective tool for neighborhood maintenance and enhancement.

The Los Angeles County Department of Regional Planning, Zoning Enforcement Section, is responsible for enforcing Title 22 of the County Code, otherwise known as the Planning and Zoning Code throughout the UNINCORPORATED area of Los Angeles County.

Effective planning requires public participation and Zoning Enforcement is a conduit that allows the public to participate in the planning process. Through Zoning Enforcement, the spread of illegal and objectionable uses can be prevented.
