Property owners in Richland County have several upcoming opportunities to learn about possible zoning changes, as the County finalizes its rewritten Land Development Code (LDC).
The LDC is a set of rules that govern land use and development in unincorporated areas of the County. The code covers standards for zoning districts and dwelling units allowed per acre, along with building location, permitted uses, signage, landscaping and other rules.
From January through March, a series of informational, in-person meetings throughout Richland County will discuss the rewritten LDC and zoning changes. The same information will be presented at each meeting, so you can attend at the time and location most convenient.
In addition to the meetings, information on the LDC will be available through mailings and an interactive app viewer, accessed on the Planning Department’s webpage. Residents can also phone or email County staff with comments and questions. To learn more, visit the County Planning webpage.
