New Castle County's planners review proposed development plans to ensure that all required elements are included. Plans that are accompanied by an application to rezone the property are also analyzed to prepare a recommendation as to whether the change in use is appropriate and meets the goals of the Comprehensive Development Plan.
All land development plans must go through a multi-stage review process, as outlined here.
Citizens are encouraged to provide input on proposed plans and may contact the Department of Land Use between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. weekdays at (302) 395-5400 or by email to request further information or to review plans under review.
