The setbacks for a property depend on the zone in which the property is located. The zoning of a property can be found on the Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission website, on the official zoning maps located in the Department of Permitting Services office, or in the information office of Maryland-National Park and Planning Commission. The development standards (setbacks) for a shed or deck can be found on the Department of Permitting Services Zoning Webpage.
