Design Review is an aesthetic review of new development and renovations of existing development to protect what we call "Island Character".
"Island Character" is that sense of place, the uniqueness that is Hilton Head Island and sets our town apart from Bluffton, Myrtle Beach, Key West or anywhere else.
The Town adopted a Design Guide that gives examples of "Island Character". Decisions by the Design Review Board and staff are based on the Design Guide.
Those areas along major or minor roads, along the water and marsh front, resort areas, and around Sea Pines Circle and Coligny Circle.
The Urban Designer will assist with the application and guide you through the process.
Download the application and submit it with all required materials and filing fee.
