Local Coastal Program & Land Use Plan

The primary goal of the Local Coastal Program (LCP) is to ensure that the local government’s land use plans, zoning ordinances, zoning maps, and implementation actions meet the requirements, provisions and polices of the California Coastal Act. This is crucial to ensure we are protecting and enhancing our coastal areas, for their irreplaceable environmental values and for the public enjoyment.

The Half Moon Bay Local Coastal Land Use Plan (LCLUP) and the Zoning Ordinance together constitute the "Local Coastal Program" (LCP) for the City’s coastal zone. The LCLUP is the policy component of the LCP; and the Zoning Ordinance, which is the City’s Local Coastal Implementation Plan (LCIP), provides standards and requirements that implement the LCLUP.
