Connecticut Coastal Management Manual
The Coastal Management Manual was developed as a tool for coastal land use agents, boards and commissions, as well as developers, consultants and individuals, to use in understanding how to apply the standards and policies of the Connecticut Coastal Management Act. The manual replaces the Coastal Policies and Use Guidelines (a.k.a. Planning Report #30) which was published by the Department of Environmental Protection's Coastal Area Management Program in December 1979.
The format of this manual is intended to allow for ease of use. It can be readily updated and new materials will be added as they become available.
