The Botetourt County Code of Ordinances explains best when a Zoning permit is required:

Sec. 25-571. - Zoning permits.

No permitted principal or accessory building, structure or use, or building, structure or use permissible by special exception shall be constructed, reconstructed, moved, added to or structurally altered or otherwise allowed without a permit therefore issued by the building official and approved by the zoning administrator.

A zoning permit is required in all cases where a building permit is required.
