CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) -- A permit for South Carolina's planned $35 million passenger cruise terminal has been delayed while state regulators seek extensive additional information from the State Ports Authority.

The Office of Ocean and Coastal Resource Management wants information on traffic, power for the new terminal and how the structure will affect property values in the nearby historic district.

Dan Burger with the Coastal Resource office says the agency expects the information next week.

The terminal is the focus of lawsuits in both state and federal court. The Ocean and Coastal Resource Management office must approve a permit for elevators in the new terminal being created in an old warehouse on the Cooper River.

About 200 people turned out last April for a public hearing on the permit.
