City of Malibu Local Coastal Program Implementation Plan – Shoreline & Bluff Development

City Of Malibu   
Urban | Suburban |
The City of Malibu requires the design and siting of all new shoreline development and shoreline protective devices to consider anticipated accelerated sea level rise. The City requires that new development be sufficiently set back and elevated to minimize to the maximum extent feasible hazards associated with anticipated sea level rise over the expected one-hundred year economic life of the structure. All applications for new beach or bluff-top development must include an engineering analysis of coastal hazards, including future projections of sea level rise. Applicants must receive approval from the Coastal Commission and/or State Lands Commission where organizational jurisdiction applies.
