Residents file temporary injunction on new construction in Horry County

Longs resident Timothy Irving is spearheading a resident driven, county-wide effort to stop all forms of building in Horry County until impact studies are done.

The injunction asks for the Horry County Planning Board to “cease activities that would permit and allow the new construction and/or development of any and all structures for common living space, multi-unit living, and commercial parcels.”

The request for a temporary injunction stems from a petition with over 859 Horry County signatures. See that petition here: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/horry-county-petitions-of-rights?fbclid=IwAR15AAdAbl7sBCW13aIxppYJaiHVoPnbHQJq4TIjKO77O1lhh9i9-MJ6Fds

It states that residents of Longs, Socastee, Bucksport and Myrtle Beach have suffered a loss of property, due to floodwaters, lack of sufficient water shed and sewage infrastructure and poor planning and zoning on behalf of Horry County Planning Commission.

Petition signed with samples of comments from Horry County Residents

However, these Horry County residents are taking on much more than the county legal system. The Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors [CCAR] is one of the most powerful lobbying groups in the State of S.C.

We reached out to Laura Crowther, CEO, Coastal Carolina Association of Realtors [CCAR] for her input on this legal filing. As of this publication, Mrs. Crowther has not responded.
