The Raleigh Board of Adjustment is a quasi-judicial body that conducts evidentiary hearings on requests for variances, special use permits, and appeals from administrative decisions regarding the City’s zoning ordinances. Its decisions are final and may be appealed to the superior court by writ of certiorari. The Board consists of eight members: four regular members and two alternate members are appointed to two-year terms by the City Council and must reside within the City limits; one regular member and one alternate are appointed by Wake County Commissioners and must reside within the City's extraterritorial jurisdiction.
All Variance and Special Use Permit (SUP) applications must be submitted electronically through the Permit and Development Portal. All other applications can be found below.
