Beaufort Co. zoning, building permits required for certain structures

Posted: Updated:

As spring arrives in the Lowcountry, more and more people are doing yard work.

Some residents may realize they need more storage space and purchase a shed or build a structure on their property.

The Beaufort County Zoning and Building Codes Departments would like to remind the public, if a one-story detached structure used as a tool shed, playhouse or similar use, is placed on private property, that property owner must apply for a zoning permit.

If the structure or shed is larger than 200 square feet, the property owner must also apply for a building code permit.

For more information, please call the Beaufort County Zoning Department at 843.255.2170 or Beaufort County Building Codes Department at 843.255.2065.

The Beaufort County Code of Ordinances can also be found at on the Zoning Department's website.
