Coastal Permiting

Matrix Design Studio has years of experience applying for Coastal Development Permits with the California Coastal Commission. Our firm works with recognized geotechnical and civil engineering experts that specialize in the Southern California region to develop coastal planning and development permitting strategies. Matrix Design Studio has completed high-profile public and private projects in the La Jolla, Del Mar, Solana Beach, Encinitas and Laguna Beach coastal zones.

Our breadth of experience can inform the design of a project so that it does not automatically trigger the Coastal Development Permitting process unless appropriate. We coordinate with the California Coastal Commission to ensure the permitting process is as smooth as possible, thorough and professional. We understand the ever changing challenges of the California coastal bluff set backs.

Our familiarity with the Coastal Permitting Process ensures the design intent of the project aligns with the California Coastal Commission’s environmental concerns prior to commencing the permitting process, reducing the likelihood of costly redesigns. We work with the California Coastal Commission to protect the design intent of the project while addressing the project’s coastal and environmental impacts, ensuring the city’s vision for development aligns with the project goals. Our firm navigates the challenges of the permitting process by using our depth of knowledge of the intricacies of the California Coastal laws, regulations, procedures and policies.
