Planning Applications, Forms and Fees


Manatee County developed the Development Review Manual with the goal of providing a streamlined process for the public to submit planning applications. Part I of the Manual was published in January 2019 after Board review and outlines the development review process. Part II was completed in October 2020, and provides detailed instructions of the requirements of each type of planning application.
