Horry County Planning Commission approves proposed rezoning of 102 acres of land in Longs

HORRY COUNTY, SC (WBTW) — The Horry County Planning Commission approved a motion to rezone 102 acres of land in Longs at a meeting Thursday night.

The proposed rezoning of a 102-acre portion of land to make room for over 200 new homes near Camp Swamp and Buck Creek Roads in Longs has met with public opposition.

Matthew Gore, a North Carolina resident who owns land near this property, was hoping for a different outcome from the meeting.

“To be honest, I’m a little disappointed,” Gore said. “You know, I feel like there was substantial evidence to oppose the rezoning. I feel like, you know, you look at it systemically, there’s so many developments in run around this. The issues that people have been raising will only be exacerbated by this development.

The newly approved proposal will be submitted to Horry County Council for approval, along with rezoning applications for just over 60 acres of land in Conway and just under two acres in Myrtle Beach.
