The Planning Division of the Planning and Development Services Department is a joint City-County agency serving Winston-Salem and unincorporated Forsyth County as well as the smaller municipalities of Bethania, Tobaccoville, Rural Hall. Our staff has expertise in land use planning, transportation planning, economic development, historic preservation, neighborhood revitalization, environmental protection, and other issues affecting the growth of our community. Staff provides the data, information and professional recommendations regarding land use issues and other planning policy questions to the Planning Board and elected boards to help them make informed recommendations and decisions.

The Planning Board was established by a special act of the North Carolina General Assembly in 1948 to provide consolidated planning services to the City of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County. As such, it is the oldest consolidated city-county agency in North Carolina. The Board is served by Planning staff which also functions as an administrative department of City and County governments.
