The Kent County Board of Adjustment, or BOA, serves as the reviewing and decision making body for appeals to the administration of the zoning code; for example, a reduction is setback requirements for a shed. The board may grant special exception variances form the code consistent with state law. Variance applications are heard by the BOA, and a decision made, on the third Thursday of each month.


The BOA is comprised of 7 (seven) members, one from each Levy Court district.  The presence of a quorum (four or more members) is necessary for the Board to take official action on any matter before it for consideration. Their meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. in the Levy Court chambers, room 203 of the Kent County Administrative Complex, 555 Bay Road in Dover, DE, unless otherwise noted.
