County of Santa Barbara Long Range Planning Division

Agricultural Tiered Permitting

The Agricultural Tiered Permitting (ATP) project involves the development of zoning ordinance amendments to revise zoning permit requirements for certain agricultural uses countywide. This project will also identify compatible small-scale uses that would support and encourage the continuation of local agricultural operations on agricultural lands.

Tiered permitting was developed for select small-scale agricultural uses as part of the Gaviota Coast Plan. The ATP project will evaluate the appropriateness of these uses and permit requirements for inclusion in agricultural zones countywide. More information will be posted to this website as it becomes available.
