Coastal Construction Control Line Program

The Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Program regulates structures and activities which can cause beach erosion, destabilize dunes, damage upland properties, or interfere with public access. CCCL permits also protect sea turtles and dune plants. Here you will find CCCL Program topics to help guide CCCL permit applicants, and educate the public on the coastal construction permit program.  You can also give us a call (850-245-8336) or contact us via email!

The Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) Program is an essential element of Florida's coastal management program, protecting Florida's beaches and dunes while ensuring reasonable use of private property. Recognizing the value of the state’s beaches, the Florida Legislature initiated the CCCL Program to protect the coastal system from improperly sited and designed structures which can destabilize or destroy the beach and dune system. Once destabilized, these valuable coastal resources are lost, as are important recreation, upland property protection and environmental habitat values. Adoption of a CCCL establishes an area of jurisdiction in which special siting and design criteria are applied for construction and related activities. These standards may be more stringent than those already applied in the rest of the coastal building zone because of the greater forces expected to occur in the more seaward beach zone during a storm event.
