Can I have an apartment over my garage?

Yes. The Town allows accessory dwelling units (ADUs) in most residential zoning districts. Please call the Planning & Engineering Division at (843) 884-1229 to verify that there are no restrictions on your property and an ADU can be constructed on your property. Size, location, occupancy, and other requirements may be found in Zoning Code Section 156.110 & 156.111.  A building permit application must be submitted to the Building Inspection Division.  The application will be reviewed and approved by both the Building Inspections and Planning and Engineering Divisions before a permit is issued.
