Insulating unfinished room in basement


I just got done finishing my basement with permits in Virginia. I have yet to get the final inspection. I have one question before doing that. I have one corner of the basement that I left unfinished for storage. Its enclosed, 2 of the walls are the foundation walls, the other 2 are the partition walls which are finished on the other side. Do I need to run insulation in the partitioned walls to be code compliant? I attached some photos, excuse the mess!

Regardless of the code you want to move that insulation layer to that outside foundation wall. That'll keep those floors above much warmer and slow the energy loss through that location.
