Rules on Apiaries

Asked April 7, 2020, 5:04 PM EDT

Are apiaries allowed in Henrico County and what are the distance requirements from neighboring properties? Are there any ordinances specific to apiaries you can point me to?

Good Morning, Sorry for the delay.

It will take you to Chapter 24 of the county’s code (Zoning Ordinance). You’ll want to refer to Section 24-11 (c), which also refers to Section 24-10.a., which handles distance requirements. Bees would fall under this ordinance.

Henrico County is updating the zoning and subdivision ordinances. Public participation will be a vital part of this process. To learn about the project and upcoming meetings visit the Zoning and Subdivision Ordinance Update website .
