The current beach nourishment project is in full swing and is progressing north towards the Town Line.  As the beach work is completed in your area, you may begin thinking about repairing your beach access and stairs.  Please keep in mind that you will need CAMA authorization and a building permit from the Town before the repairs are made. 

Attached is the Private Beach Access Crossover ordinance which details the guidelines and regulations for new and repaired beach accesses, as well as the building permit application.  The Town’s CAMA Representative is Jason Dail. He can be reached at 910-796-7221 or Jason.Dail@ncdenr.gov
