MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (AP) - A builder in Mount Pleasant has been ordered to stop work on five houses that town officials are too tall.

The Post and Courier of Charleston reported (https://bit.ly/2ejrOQJ) that the order came even though town officials had approved the plans and building permits for Ashton Charleston Residential.

The 21 homes on 1.3 acres of land at Sullivan’s Point have upset residents of a neighboring subdivision and an environmental group.

The order applies to just five of the homes.

Mount Pleasant limits buildings to 40 feet and no more than three stories on the lots that are in dispute.

But the town doesn’t define the word “story,” The buildings in question have parking at ground level beneath three floors of living space.

Town officials say the buildings are too tall.
