Permitting of Coastal Structures and Penalties for Unpermitted Structures

The California Coastal Act of 1976 generally requires the permitting of revetments, breakwaters, groins, harbor channels, seawalls, cliff retaining walls, and other such construction. Current law also provides for phasing out or upgrading certain existing structures that contribute to pollution or fish kill. A bill introduced in this year’s session of the California Legislature, Assembly Bill 1129 (Stone), would define an existing structure as one legally authorized and existing as of 1977. Assembly Bill 1129 also specifies that development beyond the scope of an emergency permit requires a new coastal development permit and imposes penalties on any coastal zone landowner who has unpermitted structures.
