How can I find out what my property is zoned and the permitted uses?
Individuals with questions about a property's zoning should contact the Code Compliance and Development Office at 864-647-3200 X 105 and request the current zoning and/or a copy of the zoning district code.
Where can I find a copy of the zoning ordinance?
The zoning ordinance is found within the City of Westminster Code of Ordinance, Section 150 of which you can view at the Westminster Branch - Oconee County Public Library located at 112 W. North Avenue, Westminster, SC 29693 or click here.
What happens to my property if the zoning classification is changed?
It is important to note that a zoning change cannot be used to take away a property owner's right to continue to use their land or building for any legal, existing use. Therefore, if you operate a retail store and the zoning was changed to residential, you can continue to operate the store until you either voluntarily change or abandon the use. This situation is referred to as a Legally Established Non-Conforming Use.
