Fifty New Homes Planned for Kiawah


kiawah mapState regulators have approved a new permit that would allow development of Captain Sam’s Spit. The move came a little more than five months after the state Supreme Court ruled against granting an earlier permit.

Environmental opponents characterized the move by Charlotte-based Kiawah Partners as trying to find a loophole around the court decision, and have appealed the staff decision to the Department of Health and Environmental Control board, likely setting up another protracted legal fight over the spit.

The DHEC stormwater permit was approved May 8. It provides for the construction of a sheet pile wall nearly a half-mile long that will hold up a road across the narrow neck of the spit to the high ground where 50 homes are proposed. The permit also allows preliminary work on sites for the homes. The company is calling the proposed community Cape Charles.
