What is the process of subdividing a piece of property?
The subdivision of property in the City of Clemson is governed by the Land Development Regulations (Chapter 15 of the City Code of Ordinances). Proposed subdivisions are categorized primarily based on the number of resulting lots, and whether new streets are created. It should be noted that, although staff has been delegated authority to approve Simple Lot Subdivisions (four or fewer lots with no new streets), all Major and Minor Subdivisions are subject to review and approval by the Planning Commission. To determine which category a proposed subdivision falls into, as well as what materials and fees are required, contact the Planning and Codes Department.
