Is A Coastal Development Permit Now Required To Visit, Live, Or Die Near The Coast?

The answer, following the logic of a case decided by the California Supreme Court last week, may well be ‘yes’.  That case, Pacific Palisades Bowl Mobile Estates, LLC v. City of Los Angeles, concluded that a permit is required for all “changes in density or intensity of use” in the Coastal Zone-regardless of whether any changes actually occur.  If the Legislature does not step in, a permit might now be required to do, or contemplate doing, almost anything at all along the California coast.
