Coastal Construction Control Line and Coastal Barrier Resources System Zones
julio 13, 2015 - ATB #005-15
Due to recent changes in Florida law, there are new eligibility rules for certain structures located seaward of the state-designated Coastal Construction Control Line (CCCL) and those within the federally designated Coastal Barrier Resources System (CBRS). These geographical zones were developed to provide protection for Florida’s coastline while ensuring reasonable use of private property.
New Eligibility Rules
Effective immediately, any major structure (for example, homes, apartments, condos, commercial or public buildings*) for which a permit is applied after July 1, 2015, and that is seaward of the CCCL or within the CBRS, may be deemed ineligible for coverage if it is one of the following:
- Newly constructed
- Rebuilt, repaired, restored or remodeled to increase the total square footage of the finished area by more than 25 percent
- Citizens underwriting manuals will be updated with CCCL/CBRS information.
- CCCL/CBRS boundaries are subject to change by the administering authorities.
