Coastal permits are required for development on parcels located within the Coastal Zone (containing "CC" in their zoning code designation). Coastal permits are processed either administratively without a hearing, or with a public hearing, typically by the Board of Zoning Adjustments.
Examples of administrative reviews include residences on the east side of Highway 1 and residences within established communities. All coastal permit applications include public notice to neighbors in the vicinity of the subject property and other parties who have requested notice.
