The City of Chesapeake establishes code standards for the keeping of swine in an agriculture district only.
Regulations for the keeping of swine are found within the City of Chesapeake's Municipal Code (Section 10-18) which requires the property owner to keep the facility and pen location in a sanitary manner, control of vegetation, and follow the feeding requirements. The Environmental Quality Control Committee has been appointed to review swine operations and make recommendations for corrective action when a violation is discovered.
Are potbellied pigs classified as swine?
Potbellied pigs are not classified as swine. A Vietnamese potbellied pig may be kept as a pet in a residential zoning district. However, keeping a potbellied pig is subject to the Municipal Code requirements. See the Article 14-903 of the Municipal Code for more information
