The NC Division of Coastal Management, under the direction of the Coastal Resources Commission, in cooperation with local governments in the 20-county coastal area has developed a program of permit review and coordination within these areas of environmental concern. Each county has a Local Permit Officer (LPO) on staff to assist its residents with the CAMA rules. As a rule of thumb, any development along the oceanfront or estuarine shoreline is impacted by CAMA regulations. Depending on the scope of development, either a minor or a major CAMA permit may be necessary before commencing work.
