Shoreline erosion control in Durham New Hampshire can be a serious challenge.

Although obtaining shoreline replenishment and development permits for oceanfront or beachfront parcels on any one of the Durham New Hampshire’s oceanfronts, or beachfronts, or alternatively for wetland property as well, seems like a logical first step in solving your shoreline erosion problem, there is a lot of planning that has to come before the shoreline permitting can take place.

Living near the water is a truly special thing. Residents of Durham New Hampshire, like everywhere, are drawn to the calm, beautiful waters and the year-round recreation and relaxation they afford.

Understanding Your Options for Shoreline Erosion Control and Stabilization in Durham New Hampshire Starts With an Understanding of the NH Shoreline Protection Act

To protect this beautiful Durham NH shoreline, land up to 250 feet from water’s edge falls under the regulation of each state’s version of the Shoreline Protection Act. These acts impose boundaries, limiting activities near a shoreline – even on private property. The use of mechanical equipment, tree and stump removal, and vegetation restrictions of the shoreline are allowed only when certain conditions are met. If not, steep fines can accrue.

Shoreline and wetland properties must also adhere to certain conditions that must be considered in your master site plan before construction begins on any shoreline erosion control solution.

Steeper grades, septic system setbacks and view regulations are but some. We consider all the factors associated with oceanfront, and beachfront land planning and are skilled in crafting all necessary impact statements en route to designing and implementing a successful shoreline erosion control solution including g those that require more complex shoreline replenishment and stabilization.

We strive to give our clients the best possible customer care. When the job is done, we feel the pride of the homeowner as if it were our own…that means addressing your shoreline erosion control and embankment stabilization project goes off without a hitch.

Similarly, building near wetlands – land that is marsh, swamp, or is saturated – also leaves you subject to regulations. Setbacks, proper silt fence placement and vegetation requirements are examples of things to consider. If you are thinking about developing on the shoreline, or near wetlands, we can help with any phase of the project, from site planning, permitting, to design and project management and shoreline erosion control.

Large oceanfront parcels are hard to come by, and even a small tract along the shoreline can be expensive.

Clients who want to build as big a house as possible face restrictions on oceanfront construction sites, including the amount of land that can be covered by an impervious surface, the footprint of the structure, decks, docks, and any detached garage or driveway. As land planners serving the Sea Coast Regions of New Hampshire for many years, we have helped residents gain the maximum amount of space for their waterfront structures while meeting all of the shoreline requirements and in maximizing the beauty of the property as built, and with planning for shoreline erosion.
