Marine Construction Permitting – Chesapeake Bay Area

marine construction permits are necessary for all types of shoreline construction projectsIn general, the permitting process for any marine construction project in Maryland or Virginia must begin several months in advance of the actual construction start date. State and County permits are required, and some local jurisdictions may require permits as well. (See list below, and consult within your local jurisdiction for verification.) Building permits are required, in addition to permits from the Department of the Environment due to the movement of land under or adjacent to a body of water.

Knowing that the permitting process required prior to building a new dock, pier, boat lift or revetment can be quite arduous, Bay Pile Driving offers to take over this part of the project for waterfront home owners who are new to the area or have never engaged in the process before. For a separate permitting fee, we will complete and submit all paperwork and required copies of plans/blueprints, and arrange for the necessary site visits and inspections.

Our familiarity with the procedures involved helps move the process along faster (when possible), and gives our clients the peace of mind that this critical part of the project will be handled professionally, by a team with over 2 decades of experience in the local area.
