Impact Fee

CLOVER SCHOOL IMPACT FEE IMPLEMENTATION

On September 8th, 2020 County Council passed an ordinance adopting Clover School District (CSD) public education facility impact fees. The established fees are set as follows: $4,000 per single-family residential unit, $2,618 per mobile home, and $1,976 per each unit in a multi-family development, including townhomes.

This new impact fee applies to all new residential development within the district, including in the Town of Clover and unincorporated York County within the CSD boundary.

The fee will be collected at the time a residential building permit is issued. The effective date of this new fee is Friday, January 15, 2021. If your permit application has been submitted, reviewed, and approved prior to 5:00 p.m. on January 14, 2021, you will not be charged the new impact fee.

Payments are made at the Planning and Development Services office located at 18 W. Liberty Street, York SC 29745-0096. York County does not accept credit card payment for impact fees.

Please note, residential building permits are valid for six months from the date of approval. If you do not have at least one inspection within this six month period, your permit will automatically expire. If the permit was issued prior to the new impact fee being implemented, you will be responsible for paying the new impact fee upon renewing your permit.
