Regulating the way in which property develops also provides citizens with an idea of the type of future development which can occur in their neighborhood or adjacent to their business.
Zoning is also one of several tools to use in implementing the Town’s long-range plans.
For example, in the more intense commercial and industrial districts, there are increased setback and screening standards when located next to residentially-zoned properties. These standards decrease adverse impacts on residential property.
The Town of Little Elm has 22 zoning districts each with their own requirements and allowed uses.
In addition, an applicant can ask for a Planned Development, which allows the applicant to “pick and choose” their uses and development requirements. A PD will require additional reviews by Town Staff prior to going to public hearing and the applicant will have to provide the Town with detailed site plans along with their application.
Zoning Request(<50 acres): $500
Zoning Request(>50 acres): $500 + $10/acre
Planned Development(PD): $900 + $20/acre
Specific Use Permit(SUP): $300
All uses listed in a chart in Section 6 of our Zoning Ordinance. Contact the Planning and Development Department at (214) 975-0472 to verify the type of zoning you need for a specific use. Staff will discuss your proposed uses and whether those uses are permitted in your current zoning district. If your intended use is not permitted, staff will advise you as to the zoning district you would need to apply for.
The Planning staff will discuss the surrounding zoning, land uses, recent area zoning trends, adopted development-related policies and any other factors important to your zoning change. Staff will also provide you with a zoning application form and a submittal schedule.
The applicant will also be held responsible to make sure that a sign is erected on the property making the public hearing known. Sign specifications, applications and other information is available below.
The process for obtaining a SUP is similar to the zoning process. The Planning and Zoning Commission, Town Council and/or Town Staff may require a site plan and/or a feasibility study to be included with the SUP application. Section 6 of the Town’s Zoning Ordinance lists what SUPs are available in each Zoning District.
In addition to speaking at the Public Hearing, you may also send letters to the Commission and Council or discuss the case with the members. A more formal process is to submit a petition of support of opposition to the case.
Final PlatA Final Plat is the next step in the development process after approval of a Preliminary Plat by the Planning and Zoning Commission and Town Council. The Final plat is a technical drawing showing the exact dimensions and bearings and is the instrument which becomes the official, permanent record of the division of land filed with Denton County. Final plats must comply with the approved Preliminary Plat.
A Final Plat may be created for every lot shown on the approved Preliminary Plat or for a portion of the lots shown on the Preliminary Plat.
Replat A replat is required when you are revising existing platted lots or combining platted and unplatted lots for the purpose of creating a new lot configuration.
Certain replats require a public hearing and written notice to other property owners within the existing subdivision.
Amended Plat An Amended Plat is used if you are relocating an internal lot line, combining lots, correcting an error, or other minor changes. This is approved administratively.
If construction is anticipated to follow platting, a signed copy of the Engineering Plan checklist is required along with preliminary Engineering Plans.
Replats may also require mailing labels (Avery 5160) with the property owner’s addresses for every lot within the subdivision.
You will need to submit seven (7) folded copies of your plat (24”X36”) and seven (7) copies of the engineering plans (if construction will follow platting).
Checklists, applications, the submittal schedule and our Subdivision Ordinance can be obtained at the Planning and Development Department or can be accessed below.

Plats must be prepared by a licensed land surveyor or engineer.
A plat is not the property survey required by mortgage companies when closing the sale of property.
Plats are reviewed for compliance with regulations regarding minimum lot size and lot width; setbacks; street access and size; utility provisions; parks and open space provisions; and drainage and flood protection.
1. If your property is vacant, has never been platted and you wish to build a new structure on it. A plat is not required if you are adding to or altering an existing home or adding a storage shed, etc.
2. If you are selling a portion of the property you own, you must have a plat showing all the property you own and how you intend to divide it approved by the Town.
3. If you own two adjacent lots and wish to build over the common lot line.
