A Discussion of Permitting Policy on The Capitol Beach
Regulations, permits & approvals - Could the system improve?
"Beach and inlet management and restoration rely on strong environmental protections to maintain the health and ecological value of these systems. Optimizing the timeliness, efficiency, and effectiveness of regulatory review for projects occurring along beaches and inlets is critical to ensuring the functioning and restoration of multi-use coastlines.” The second of a five part series reviewing coastal policies essential for improving beach and inlet management, taken from American Shore & Beach Preservation Association (ASBPA) and Coastal States Organization’s (CSO) new “Joint Policy.” Derek Brockbank is joined by Rachel Keylon, CSO Federal Affairs Director, and Tony Pratt, ASBPA President. Be sure to listen to the other episodes on Sediment Management, Funding, Shoreline Development, and Research for a comprehensive review of what Congress and the Administration need to do to improve resilience for coastal beaches and inlets.
