The Planning Division is responsible for ensuring compliance with the Beaufort Code, review and coordination of changes to the legal boundaries of real property, and for coordination of the design review process.
The Beaufort Code is a form-based development code. What does that mean?
Form-based codes address the relationship between building facades and the public realm, the form and mass of buildings in relation to one another, and the scale and types of streets and blocks. -- Planopedia
The Beaufort Code coordinates with Beaufort County's and Port Royal's development ordinances.
