Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Coastal Zone '93


The rising population of coastal South Carolina has lead to an increasing demand for water access structures such as private docks. In order to comprehensively review the impacts of large numbers of docks, the South Carolina Coastal Council has instituted mandatory dock master planning. This process requires land developers to submit precise plans according to established guidelines showing all waterfront lots and proposed docks within a new subdivision.
