Local Beach Access Plans and Erosion Response Plans


Decrease text sizeRestore default text sizeIncrease text size  Print this page

Coastal governments are required to adopt a Beach Access and Use Plan to protect and promote public access to the beach and a Dune Protection Plan to protect the beach dune system. Beginning in 2009 coastal governments were required to implement an Erosion Response Plan (ERP) to reduce public expenditures for erosion and storm damage losses to public and private property, including public beaches. In practice the three plans are consolidated into one plan for each jurisdiction. The Texas General Land Office reviews these plans and certifies that they meet the minimum standards set forth in Texas law.
