New Kent County, Virginia  Economic Development Authority

Planning, Zoning, and Permits

The County’s Comprehensive Plan is built on the concept of business growth centered around the Interstate Interchanges, the Courthouse Village area and for heavier commercial and industrial development, along the Route 33 Corridor. Most properties are zoned; the permitting process has been streamlined; and the Director of Economic Development is the contact point for business to insure speedy handling of the approval process. Plan reviews and comments by the county staff will be completed in no more than fourteen days.
