What is Envision Hanover?

Throughout 2022 and 2023, Hanover County worked with residents, businesses, landowners, and other community members to update its long-range vision for the future.


The Comprehensive Plan is a long-range guide for growth and development, establishing a vision of what Hanover County could look like in twenty years. The plan addresses a variety of topics, including land use, housing, economic development, and natural resources. It identifies objectives and strategies that can be implemented to realize the community’s vision. Visit the Project Resources page to view the final version of the plan (adopted September 27, 2023).
