The Mission of the Department of Planning and Development is to protect the County's natural resources; to ensure quality and sustainable community development and affordable housing; and to protect the public health safety and welfare of our constituents through the application and enforcement of the County of Santa Clara's Ordinance Code and land use policies.​​​​​​​

 

We are Modernizing - Please Excuse Our Dust

We are undergoing a Floor Remodel Project with upgrades to the 7th Floor Front Counter and customer service areas.  Please bear with us during the ongoing construction.  We encourage customers to make an appointment with a plan checker, project planner or other staff member to facilitate customer service during this time.

 

Again, thank you for your patience during this process.
