Dock Construction Permit

An EPD permit is required prior to obtaining an Orange County Building permit for a new dock. Our permits review the dock construction for impacts to the environment and include review of side setbacks, roof height, terminal platform size and other specific criteria. Once you have obtained our permit, an Orange County Building permit is required.
