      Dinwiddie County permits two types of home occupations: Type I and Type II. Generally, Type II home occupations are more intense uses and are allowed in fewer areas of the county. Specific requirements for home occupations are described in Dinwiddie Code Section 22-245, a copy of which is provided with this application. The home occupation type(s) permitted in each district are described in the “Permitted Uses” section for the applicable zoning district in Dinwiddie County Code Chapter 22, Zoning, Article IV, District Regulations. The Dinwiddie County Code is available online via a link from the county’s website, or in print at the Dinwiddie County Planning Office.
