Shoreline Permit Records


The Center for Coastal Resources Management serves the historical records for all tidal wetland Joint Permit Applications (JPA) in a searchable database.  These records include the original JPA and all associated photos, public hearing notices, additional information, and VIMS Reports.  All records prior to January 1, 2015 can be found here.  Historical JPA Records

We also maintain a Microsoft Access database that houses Virginia tidal shoreline erosion control permit records.  These public records were obtained from Joint Permit Applications (JPA) submitted to the Virginia Marine Resources Commission (VMRC) between 1970 and the present. This database contains JPA permit records and other information, if available:

  • Project shoreline site characteristics and geo-locations
  • CCRM project category type and living shoreline status
  • Permit agents and marine contractors
  • Local wetlands board permit decisions
  • Preferred shoreline management recommendations from CCRM’s Shoreline Management Model
  • Year built

The Tidal Shoreline Permit Database is continually updated with new and historic information as it becomes available.  These permit-related data are used to support various CCRM coastal resources management activities and are shareable upon request.  [[CCRMinfo, Contact Us]] to submit a request.
