CRC NC Proposed Changes

The NC Coastal Resource Commission (CRC) is considering a revised mapping of North Carolina's Inlet Hazard Areas as defined in the NC Coastal Area Management Act (CAMA). The CRC's designated Science Panel and NC Division of Coastal Management staff have been working together to revise inlet hazard area limits. Changes to the general use standards for development within inlet hazard areas will also be updated in conjunction with the revised mapping.

The NC General Assembly is also considering CRC-approved changes to oceanfront structure setbacks. If you have any questions regarding current regulations or possible changes to the NC Coastal Area Management Act, please contact Mr. Steve Morrison or Ms. Laura Stasavich at,, or 910-452-0001.
