The Land Development Ordinance (LDO) regulates how land may be developed within Cary and its planning jurisdiction. The ordinance controls zoning, subdivision of land, building appearance, landscaping, signs, parking and other aspects of development.

The LDO took effect July 1, 2003, replacing the Unified Development Ordinance and is amended from time to time.  Please feel free to view a list of pending LDO amendments (Rounds 20-30) (Rounds 31 and above).
