Coastal Construction Control Line Document

This CCCL Post-Storm Public Information Handout provides Emergency Permitting Guidance for Local Governments, State Agencies and Public Utilities.  In response to emergency conditions created by the impacts of hurricanes and tropical systems, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) issues an Emergency Final Order (EFO) that waives specific rules and statutes to address the need for immediate response and recovery actions. The EFO is also referred to as an "Emergency Authorization for Repairs, Replacements, Restoration, and Certain Other Measures Made Necessary by Hurricane _________" and is further described on the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Emergency Permitting page.

The DEP Office of Resilience and Coastal Protection has developed the attached emergency permitting guidance table to give local governments, state agencies and public utilities a concise explanation of activities that are authorized seaward of the Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) under the EFO, those post storm recovery activities that can be approved by the local government or those that require a DEP CCCL permit.  Note that consultation with Florida’s Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) may be required for construction, operation of equipment, and other activities conducted on the sandy beach or frontal dune during sea turtle nesting season.

A companion CCCL Post-Storm Public Information Handout subtitled "Emergency Permitting Guidance for Private Property Owners and Managers" provides similar detailed descriptions of procedures intended to help beachfront property owners expedite storm recovery activities seaward of the CCCL.
