At its June 2009 meeting, the CRC:
Ruled in favor of a request by the Village of Bald Head Island and J. Andrew Sayre to issue a declaratory ruling on the appropriate erosion rate factor for the application of the Commission’s oceanfront setbacks for the area known as West Beach on Bald Head Island in Brunswick County. The CRC ruled that the erosion rate in this area should be two feet per year, as determined by the Division of Coastal Management, rather than the eight feet per year rate that applies to the Ocean Erodible Area shoreline adjacent to the Inlet Hazard Area boundary.
Accepted the Ocean Policy Steering Committee report.
Approved for public hearing amendments to15 NCAC 7H 0.309 Use Standards for Ocean Hazard Areas: Exceptions to allow an exception for offshore wind facility transmission lines to be placed in the Ocean Erodible setback area.
Approved for public hearing amendments to 15A NCAC 7H .1704-5(a) Temporary Erosion Control Structures, to amend the general permit for sandbags to allow sandbags to be permitted more than 20 feet from the structure in cases where the structure, due to site-specific conditions, is at an increased risk of imminent damage; allowing an extended timeframe (eight years) for sandbags located in an Inlet Hazard Area if they are located in a community that is actively seeking an inlet relocation project; allowing an additional eight-year extension should the structure become threatened again and the community seeks another inlet relocation project; and a provision that requires sandbags to be removed when the structure is removed, relocated or no longer threatened, or upon completion of a beach nourishment or inlet relocation project.
