Coastal works reconstructions and repairs require permits

The Ministry of Sustainability & Climate Resiliency is reminding the public that reconstructions and repairs to existing coastal works structures, such as docks, seawalls, etc., that were damaged by the passage of Hurricane Ian require approval.

For permitted structures, reconstructions and repairs must be to the same dimensions and in the same approved location and footprint as per the original Coastal Works Permit for the structure. There is no application fee or approval fees associated with rebuilding structures within the same, approved footprint.

Unauthorised coastal works, including unapproved reconstructions and repairs to existing permitted structures, may attract fines or penalties per Section 21 of the National Conservation Act.

The Reconstruction/Repair of Coastal Structures Application Form may be downloaded here: https://doe.ky/resources/brochures/  

The Ministry requests that completed application forms be submitted via email to coastal.works@gov.ky for processing. Once received, applications may take one to two weeks (depending on complexity and number of applications) to be processed and approved.

The Ministry also encourages the public to submit the necessary applications to the Planning Department for any land-based repairs or construction works. Please visit www.planning.ky  for more information.
