Build Responsibly

  • Determine if the lot and building presently meet the setback for new construction.

  • Always check with the Inspections Department before you build on, alter, degrade or fill on your property.

  • Report illegal building or filling to the Building Department at 910-328-1349.

  • If you are in the process of, or planning on, building or retrofitting your home or business in a coastal flood hazard area, have your architect/engineer or contractor use FEMA’s technical resources for Residential Coastal Construction.
