|Applicable Jurisdiction||Opt-in: The regulations establish procedural requirements for local governments that wish to implement a local erosion control program, although local implementation is not required until after the Department of Environmental Conservation has filed coastal erosion hazard area maps for a municipality.|
These regulations define the role of the Department of Environmental Conservation in administering a regulatory program within identified coastal erosion hazard areas and establish standards for the issuance of coastal erosion management permits by the department. Land use, development and other activities are regulated in coastal areas subject to coastal flooding and erosion to minimize or prevent damage or destruction to manmade property, natural protective features, other natural resources, and to protect human life. New construction or placement of structures is regulated to place them a safe distance from areas of active erosion and the impacts of coastal storms to ensure that these structures are not prematurely destroyed or damaged due to improper siting, as well as to prevent damage to natural protective features and other natural resources.
