Applications to amend the text or map of the Aiken County Zoning and Development District Atlas are submitted to the Planning & Development Department.  These applications are first considered by the Aiken County Planning Commission, which after holding a public hearing on the application makes a recommendation for approval or disapproval to Aiken County Council.  County Council approves or disapproves the request.  Since approval of a text or map change is an ordinance change, the entire process can take four months.

Applications are available from the Planning & Development Department.  A completed application form and fee must be submitted to Planning & Development at least 30 days prior to a scheduled Planning Commission meeting.  The Aiken County Planning Commission meets on the third Thursday of the month at 6:00 PM.  Additional information about the application process and submission deadlines can be obtained from the Planning Division, at 803.642.1520.
