Important Sussex County Land Buffer Legislation

Updated: Apr 16

Updated April 16, 2020: - Friends Letter to Sussex County Planning Commission



Forest Land Buffer Example

The Friends of the Nanticoke River Steering Committee met Wednesday, April 8th, and we want to make sure you are aware of important legislation that is now in discussion.


The legislation concerns requirements for land buffers between industrial/commercial/residential development and wetlands and waterways like the Nanticoke. Current laws are antiquated with requirements significantly lower than surrounding counties and states.


While the Steering Committee will be contacting the Zoning Commission and County Council representing "The Friends of the Nanticoke", any members in Sussex County are encouraged to read the overview and contact the Planning and Zoning Commission and Sussex County Council directly to voice your support.
