15A NCAC 07I .0501         PURPOSE

The Coastal Area Management Act authorizes, but does not

require, a city or county in the coastal area to act as a permit‑letting

agency for minor development permits in areas of environmental concern.  These

Rules establish the criteria for preparation of local implementation and

enforcement plans by local governments.  Before a local government can become a

permit‑letting agency, a plan consistent with these criteria must be

submitted to the Coastal Resources Commission for approval.  These criteria are

provided to assist local government in:

(1)           establishing procedures to be followed in

developing local implementation and enforcement programs;

(2)           establishing the scope and coverage of said


(3)           establishing minimum standards to be prescribed in

said programs;

(4)           establishing staffing requirements of permit‑letting


(5)           establishing permit‑letting procedures;

(6)           establishing priorities of regional and statewide


(7)           establishing that the program is consistent with

the land use plan.
