About Planning and Development Services



The department also provides mapping services and develops the City's comprehensive plan, the Southlake 2035 Plan. The department is divided up into three divisions, Planning, Building Inspections and Code Enforcement. 

Development cases get their start in Planning and Development Services. From the first ideas and submittals, to the final inspections, all new residential, commercial and public land development roads lead to PDS.  

PDS staff also works with the Southlake City Council, Planning and Zoning Commission, and the Zoning Board of Adjustment concerning submitted development cases. If you have questions about a case, give us a call at  (817) 748-8621. Or you can contact us online 24/7. We welcome your questions.
