Dunes function as natural barriers that absorb the impact of storm surge and as sand reserves that seasonally replenish the beach. Because of their critical roles, dunes are protected by law. All coastal restoration efforts need to be approved by local, state, and federal regulating authorities. Obtaining all of the necessary paperwork within your project’s timeline can sometimes prove challenging. To simplify that process, here is our list of contacts and agencies in Alabama and Florida that can help you meet the restoration needs of your coastal environment, provide beach accesses, and approve new boardwalk installations. Depending on your property’s location (city, county), the organizations responsible for issuing the mandatory permits will vary. Remember to call us for help if you have any questions or would prefer that Dune Doctors apply for all dune-related permitting on your behalf!
