FAQ for Zoning Issues:

Question:

If I am doing a building project and live in Richland County do I need to contact the county or town for a building permit?

Answer:

You would contact the Town of Irmo first for a permit and then all building questions will be referred to Lexington County for permitting and approvals.


Question:

If I want to put a shed or carport up on my property, what do I need?

You would first contact the Town for a zoning permit and you will need a copy of the plat or a drawing that shows all of the setbacks (distances from structures to the edge of your property). If you are using a contractor they would also need a business license.

$25.00 for each permit required.
