For those areas that are out of tidal wetlands, but a structure or other impacts are proposed within the 100' protected Chesapeake Bay Preservation Area (CBPA) buffer, a CBPA permit will still be required from the Department of Planning at 757-382-6176.
Building and zoning permits are still required for wetlands projects and those projects within the CBPA. Contact the Department of Development and Permits at 757-382-6018 for these permits.
