Setbacks

A Setback is a distance from a property line, inside of which you cannot build or place structures. In most cases, especially in residential and agricultural zones, structures such as houses, decks, sheds, and swimming pools must be placed a certain distance from the property boundary.

When applying for a permit, you will have to provide the distances from the property line for any new structures. Setbacks vary depending on the zoning of the property and the project.

Call the Zoning office for setback information or refer to the Campbell County Zoning Ordinances.
