Hopes for development dashed for Captain Sams Spit

KIAWAH ISLAND, SC (WCSC) - A sandy inlet off Kiawah Island is safe from development for the time being.

The South Carolina Supreme Court denied a proposal for an erosion control structure to be built on Captain Sams Spit, according to the Coastal Conservation League, which challenged the development in court.

The swath of land has been the focus of possible development for years, including a proposal for a 50-unit residential development.
