Temporary Change in Permit Counter Hours of Service

Queen Anne’s County Planning and Zoning


Starting next Friday, April 9, 2021 until Friday, May 28, 2021 the Permit Counter at Planning and Zoning will be closing at noon. Due to a large volume of permitting activities and a current shortage in our permit technician staff, we will be closing each Friday at noon to ensure efficient processing of all permit applications we receive during the week. 


Hours of Permit Counter service April 9-May 28, 2021

Monday: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm

Tuesday: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm

Wednesday: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm

Thursday: 8:00 am – 3:30 pm

Friday: 8:00 am – 12:00 pm


Please plan on a 45 minutes permit intake process when you are submitting your application documentation.


The drop boxes located outside of the Permit Counter Office will remain open Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.


We appreciate your patience during this time as we strive to provide expedient permit intake, processing, and issuance.
