Permits for Conditional Use and Special Exception Use
Definition of Permit Types and Uses:
Before completing the application form, verification of the permit type must be determined. Please contact the Planning Department at 352-754-4057 for further assistance.
Conditional Use Permit:
A conditional use is intended to be utilized as a special permit which temporarily allows uses not otherwise permitted by the Hernando County ordinance. A conditional use is not a matter of right. It is a discretionary approval by the Planning and Zoning Commission.
Special Exception Permit:
A special exception use may be permitted in only those zoning districts where they are designated as special exception uses by the ordinance and only when specially approved by the Planning and Zoning Commission. A special exception is a legal authorization to undertake a special exception use which has been authorized in conformance with the Hernando County ordinance.
