- York County Planning & Development requires businesses (that are not located within city limits) to obtain a power letter and/or building permit. This is needed by the county to evaluate the use of your business, and the location’s zoning and building codes.
- There is a power letter guide within the application. If you are not able to determine if your business requires a letter, then please contact our Member Services Department at 803-684-4248 (Monday Friday 8 am-5 pm).
- Please contact York County Planning & Development at 803-909-7200, and they will inform you on how to obtain a power letter.
If you are opening a business in an existing building, there are some things you should know about York county’s building & zoning regulations.
