What We Do
The Clay County Planning & Zoning Department administers and oversees all aspects of planning, development, and construction activities on land. Rezonings, Subdivisions, Conditional Use Permits (CUPS), Building Permits, Floodplain Development Permits (FDP), and various other activities - all are handled by the Planning & Zoning Department.
We strongly encourage property owners, agents, and all others involved in real estate to contact us at (816) 407-3380 or E-Mail if you have any questions related to your land or buildings.
The Clay County Planning & Zoning Department has home rule jurisdiction or control over only the unincorporated areas of the County, or those areas outside of city limits. If you live within an incorporated city, you will need to contact your city regarding any planning and zoning matters as only they have control inside their city boundaries.
