New Castle County COVID-19 Response

Department of Land Use Coronavirus Policy

Effective April 2, 2020, the New Castle County Government Center is closed to the public until further notice.  Our residents and customers will need to take advantage of convenient ways to conduct business with us by one of the following methods.

You are strongly encouraged to conduct business by one of the aforementioned methods.  However, if you wish to personally drop-off an application, fees, or other paperwork, there will be a blue mailbox located inside of the vestibule of the Government Center. A staff member retrieves any submitted materials from that mailbox daily.  Please understand as the health emergency continues to evolve, this drop-off option may be eliminated.  Thank you for your cooperation.
