South Carolina State Comprehensive Beach Management Plan


South Carolina Coastal Council


In July, 1988, the South Carolina Beachfront Management Act became law, and in 1990 it was amended. This law is a complex piece of legislation, requiring the use of scientific studies of coastal processes to establish precise building setback lines along the coast. In addition, the Act bans the future construction of seawalls, limits the size of buildings within the predicted erosion zone and adopts a policy of retreat away from the erosional beach.
