While New Kent County is one of the fastest growing counties in Virginia it has planned its growth to maintain its rural atmosphere.
New Kent’s Commercial growth is concentrated around and near the four I-64 interchanges and along the Route 33 Industrial Corridor. The majority of its residential growth is taking place in Planned Unit Developments however all types of housing options are available. In-between two major Metropolitan Statistical Areas, New Kent continues to offers its residents the advantages of a rural community — clean air and water, abundant outdoor recreation, a low crime rate, low taxes, and friendly people.
Five Lakes, built around Brookwoods Golf Club in Quinton, is the most established residential subdivision in the county. Numerous cluster style residential developments are under construction in the rural parts of the county.
