Charlotte Unified Development Ordinance

Regulations To Guide Charlotte's Future Development

The Charlotte Unified Development Ordinance (UDO) is now in effect.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The most recent text amendment to the UDO is still being posted to this site. Please refer to the PDFs available for download at the top of each article for the most updated version of the UDO. The adoption of the UDO was a city-wide effort to update the regulations that guide growth and development in Charlotte. The UDO combined eight development ordinances, including the zoning ordinance, into one set of regulations to make them clearer and easier to use.
