FLOOD PLAIN MANAGEMENT
Local Development Permit Requirements
Any development work in the Town may require a permit prior to beginning work to ensure that the work will comply with applicable codes, not aggravate the effects of flooding, and minimize the potential for flood damage to structures. This includes all additions, repairs, remodeling, pouring concrete, excavation, dredging, filling, dumping, bulkheading, driving of piles, clearing, fences, etc (not just the construction of a building).
You must contact the Building Department before you start any development. If you see any development on the Island without a permit, you may contact Town Hall at (843) 883-5727.
