Title: 21 - Coastal Zoning

Chapter: 50 - California Coastal Zone Entitlement Procedures--General Provisions

Section: 20 - County entitlements equivalent to coastal development permits

Where development within the California Coastal Zone requires the issuance of a permit or other entitlement pursuant to Titles 14, 16 and 21 of the Del Norte County Code (e.g., General Plan amendment, zoning amendment, use permit, variance, building or grading permit or tentative subdivision map), said entitlement shall serve as the coastal development permit, subject to compliance with this title, except that:

     A.  No person who has obtained a vested right in a development, as determined by the Coastal Commission, prior to the effective date of this title or who holds a valid permit from the California Coastal Commission pursuant to California Coastal Act of 1976 shall be required to secure approval for the development pursuant to this title provided, however, that no substantial change may be made in any such development without prior approval having been obtained under this title and

     B.  Any person who holds a valid entitlement issued by the county prior to the effective date of this title but does not meet the requirements of subsection A of this section shall within one year of said effective date reapply to the county for a new entitlement. Where no substantial change is made in the project the following shall apply:

         1.  Repetition of review pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act may be waived, and

         2.  The project shall only be reviewed for consistency with the certified Local Coastal Program and shall be approved if consistency is affirmed. Such approval may include any new conditions or contingencies necessary to in-sure Coastal Program consistency, and

         3.  The effective date of the entitlement shall be the date of final action regarding the reapplication.
