Our Mission
The mission of the Zoning & Building office is to provide safe and secure housing by issuing permits and inspecting all new construction in Metro Hartsville/Trousdale County. We also provide staff support to the Trousdale County Regional Planning Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals to facilitate the county's planning program that includes planning, zoning, and subdivision development.

The office provides an avenue for responding to concerns pertaining to livability and development in the county including the National Flood Insurance Program and the collection of the Adequate Facilities Privilege Tax and also as Codes Enforcement Officer, the enforcement of the adopted Zoning, Building, Health and Safety Standards.

The receipt of a business license does not automatically approve your location for a business activity. You must also be in Zoning Compliance and with other possible Local and State regulations.
