The City of Travelers Rest follows the Greenville County Land Development Regulations (LDR). As such, any subdivision of property located within City limits must make application with Greenville County HERE. Applicants must meet with City staff first to ensure the proposed subdivision meets all City regulations prior to completing application at the County.


The Greenville County Subdivision Administration Office ensures compliance with the LDR with respect to the subdivision of land and coordinates plan review amongst public utility/service providers and other state/county agencies, known as the Subdivision Advisory Committee (SAC), for specific requirements and conditions that must be met for project approval. The City of Travelers Rest has their own Planning Commission which reviews all subdivision requests after comments are received through the County’s SAC process.


There are differing processes for each type of subdivision request, they are as follows:

  • Parcels divided into 7 or more lots Preliminary Plan.
  • Parcels divided into six or less lots without new roads or extension of public utilities Summary Plat.
  • Parcels divided into two lots Simple Plat.
  • Parcels combined or recombined where the total number of lots is not increased and the resultant lots are equal to the standards of the underlying Zoning District or LDR Exempt Plat.
  • Parcels divided into five-acre or more lots where no new street is involved Exempt Plat.
  • An updated plat of record Exempt Plat.
  • Creation of legal lots where a preliminary plan has been previously approved by the Planning Commission Final Plats.


County Subdivision Administration staff also administers the County’s financial security program where surety may be required for all planned infrastructure prior to final plat approval.
