The Escambia County Planning Board, sitting as the Local Planning Agency, consists of seven voting members appointed by the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners, all of whom reside within the county. Two ex-officio non-voting members sit on the planning board as well, with one appointed by the Escambia County School Board and the other appointed by the commanding officer of NAS Pensacola and NAS Whiting Field. It is the duty of the planning board to be currently informed and knowledgeable of the conditions and development in Escambia County and make recommendations relating to county growth management to the BCC. The planning board hears matters related to comprehensive planning, land development regulations, rezonings, planned unit developments as well as amendments and interpretations to the Land Development Code.
