Planning and Development

Due to the Covid-19 epidemic, please contact the Planning Department via email or phone as much as possible as we try and limit contact and adhere to social distancing guidelines.

Mission Statement

To plan comprehensively for the orderly growth and harmonious development of Spartanburg County.

Growth management coordination, land use planning, infrastructure planning, transportation planning, and GIS land base mapping are all components of the County's Planning program in support of this mission.

In addition to staffing the Spartanburg County Planning and Development Commission and Board of Zoning Appeals, Planning Staff also helps coordinate the activities of the SPATS Policy Committee and the County Water and Sewer Advisory Committee.

Area Performance Planning 

New Subdivision Regulations became effective countywide on January 1, 2020, along with a Performance Zoning Ordinance which covers the Southwest Planning Area. However, its design standards and sign regulations will be effective countywide. The Unified Land Manage,ent Ordinance remains in effect in the remainder of the County. 

The Planning Department Staff is committed to providing timely and efficient service to the citizens of Spartanburg county. We do our utmost to ensure projects are reviewed in a time manner. We appreciate your patience during this time of transition to new County Ordinance.
