The Kent County Regional Planning Commission, or RPC, serves as the reviewing and recommending body for the Levy Court in land use planning matters. Applications such as rezonings, text amendments to the zoning or subdivision code, changes to the comprehensive plan and conditional uses are heard by the RPC on the first Thursday of each month, and a recommendation on these items is made on the second Thursday of the month, unless otherwise noted. They do not meet during the month of August.

The RPC is the decision making body for certain land use planning applications, such as major subdivisions and site plans.

The RPC is comprised of 7 (seven) members, one from each Levy Court district. Their meetings are held at 6:30 p.m. in the Levy Court chambers, room 203 of the Kent County Administrative Complex, 555 Bay Road in Dover, DE, unless otherwise noted.
