Coastal Zone Consistency - General

The intent of the General Coastal Zone Consistency Certifications is to provide a means by which certain activities determined to have minimal impact and to be consistent with the SC Coastal Zone Management Program (SCCZMP) may be authorized with minimal delay. GCZC's serve as the final staff coastal zone consistency decision associated with activities covered by applicable State permits unless DHEC CZC staff determine that an individual certification will be required, or unless otherwise specified. The GCZCs are issued under the provisions of Act 123 of the 1977 South Carolina General Assembly and the 1979 SCCZMP of the SCDHEC OCRM.
