What does your Planning Office do?
The staff of the Planning Office reviews and processes a variety of Land Use applications. In addition to preparing variance applications to be heard by the Board Of Adjustment, the Planning staff also reviews site plan and subdivision plan applications to be heard by the Regional Planning Commission, and rezoning and conditional use applications which are heard by both the Regional Planning Commission and the Levy Court. Many of these applications require a formal plan prepared by a registered land surveyor, engineer or architect licensed in the State of Delaware, which is then reviewed by the staff for compliance with the Kent County Zoning & Subdivision Code Ordinances.
This is the first office to contact regarding zoning information and building setback requirements.
