Airport Environs Planning Commission

Airport Environs Planning Commission

The Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs Planning Commission was created by the South Carolina legislature in 1995. The Commission is charged with ensuring compatible land development and uses surrounding the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP). The Commission is responsible for administering the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs Area Zoning Ordinance. This ordinance contains zoning regulations that prevent airport hazards and incompatible land uses that would endanger the safe operation of aircraft as well as the lives and property of individuals located within the vicinity of the airport. 

A Proposed Development & Land Use Application must be submitted before beginning any construction or any change of tenant or use of a particular parcel of property located within the Airport Environs Area. This is to ensure the proposed land use or development will be consistent with the provisions of the Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Environs Area Zoning Ordinance.
