The Virginia General Assembly during its 1974 session enacted legislation allowing for counties that have an urban county executive form of government to accept the voluntary proffering of certain conditions in writing from a zoning applicant.
In a subsequent action, the Virginia State Code was amended to allow selected other jurisdictions, including Prince William County, to also accept proffers. The purpose of the legislation, known as conditional zoning, is to provide additional flexibility to local jurisdictions. The concept intends that the negative effects of a particular zoning application be offset to some degree through the proffering of mitigative conditions by the applicant. In 1976 the Prince William County Zoning Ordinance was amended to include provisions for the acceptance and enforcement of proffers submitted with rezoning applications.
In 2016, the Virginia General Assembly adopted legislation regarding proffers and residential rezonings.
