The Coastal Construction Permitting program, administered
by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP),
is an essential element of coastal management in Florida.
It provides protection for Florida's beaches and dunes
while assuring reasonable use of private oceanfront
property. The Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL)
defines the landward limit of the DEP's authority to
regulate coastal construction on sandy beaches. New
construction, as well as structural additions, remodeling,
or other activities that could potentially impact the
beach/dune system, requires a coastal permit from the
