 The TRC reviews site plans and subdivisions for compliance with City of Charleston codes.

The TRC exists to help people working in Charleston get development projects designed and permitted in the most efficient manner possible. Like all cities, Charleston has a set of laws established by City Council that are intended to protect the health and safety of citizens. These laws often are also for the purpose of improving the quality of design and construction in Charleston. Since there are multiple City departments responsible for administering these laws it is beneficial to have development review coordinated to avoid confusion and delay. That is the purpose of TRC.


The review committee consists of representatives from multiple city departments/divisions including: 

  • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)/Legal
  • Engineering/MS4
  • Fire
  • Geographic Information System (GIS)/Addressing
  • Parks
  • Planning
  • Traffic and Transportation
  • Zoning


 To apply, submit a completed application along with the required information and fee to the Zoning Division desk in the Permit Center. Applications are due by Noon on the deadline date.
