(A74, R131, S199)
AN ACT TO AMEND SECTION 5-23-100, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE POWERS OF A LOCAL BOARD OF ADJUSTMENT, SO AS TO PROVIDE THAT A MUNICIPALITY BY ORDINANCE MAY PERMIT OR PRECLUDE A VARIANCE FOR A USE OF A LAND, BUILDING, OR STRUCTURE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Powers of local board of adjustment
SECTION 1. Section 5-23-100(3) of the 1976 Code, as last amended by Act 408 of 1990, is further amended to read:
"(3) To authorize upon appeal in specific cases such variance from the terms of any ordinance as will not be contrary to the public interest when, owing to special conditions, a literal enforcement of the provisions of such ordinance will result in unnecessary hardship and so that the spirit of such ordinance is observed and substantial justice done; provided, a municipality by ordinance may permit or preclude the granting of a variance for a use of land, a building, or a structure that is prohibited in a given district and, if it does permit such a variance, it may require the affirmative vote of two-thirds of the local adjustment board members present and voting. Notwithstanding any other provision of this section, the governing body of a municipality may overrule the decision of the local board of adjustment concerning a use variance."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 19th day of May, 1993.
