Londonderry

Zoning Revision

The Londonderry Planning Commission is working on a comprehensive revision to the town’s Zoning Bylaw, including a complete replacement of the zoning map and districts. The changes would affect all property in town. This holistic review and revision to the Zoning Bylaw was recommended in the 2017 Londonderry Town Plan.

A complete draft of the  Londonderry Unified Development Regulations and the proposed Zoning Map are now available for public review.

Due to continuing Covid-19 emergency, the Planning Commission has been unable to hold a planned series of public meetings to present the draft regulations to the community, answer questions and receive feedback. Instead, we have created a series of videos and hand-outs so Londonderry residents, property owners and business owners can learn about and comment on the proposed regulations remotely.


How to Participate

We recommend that you follow the steps below to familiarize yourself with the proposed regulations:

  1. Use the google map below to find your property or other area in Londonderry that you are interested in. Each district is shown in a different color as indicated in the key at the bottom of the map. If you can’t tell what district you are in, try clicking on the map. A box will pop-up and tell you what the proposed zoning district is for that location.
  2. Watch the 5-minute video for that proposed zoning district. The video presentation provides an overview of the zoning revision project and a summary of the pertinent information for your zoning district. It will help orient you to the proposed regulations and tries to answer what we think will be some of the most frequently asked questions.
  3. Download the handouts for the district(s) you are interested in.
  4. Follow the link to the full draft of the regulations and the large-scale version of the zoning map. You can download those documents as PDFs and comment on the online version.
  5. Ask questions or make comments through the contact form at the bottom of the page. If you want to get paper copies of the handouts, map or proposed regulations, contact the Londonderry Town Office at 824-3356.

1. Draft Zoning Map

This is proposed zoning map for Londonderry under consideration by the Planning Commission. It is entirely new and would change the zoning districts for all land in town. The proposed map is similar to the current map, however, with districts for the village centers, Magic Mountain, other commercial areas and the  rural areas of town.
