Description:Issuance of Coastal Development Permits/Review of locally issued coastal development permits. State Commission certifies Local Coastal Programs for local planning jurisdictions, e.g. Santa Cruz County Planning Dept.

The Coastal Commission, in partnership with coastal cities and counties, plans and regulates the use of land and water in the coastal zone. Development activities, which are broadly defined by the Coastal Act to include (among others) construction of buildings, divisions of land, and activities that change the intensity of use of land or public access to coastal waters, generally require a coastal permit from either the Coastal Commission or the local government.
