A Harbor Development Permit (HDP) is required for “ground breaking activity” including construction, alteration, improvement, erection, remodeling or repair within the Port of Long Beach Harbor District. In addition to acquiring an HDP, all applicable City of Long Beach, State, and/or Federal permits (e.g. Fire, Building and Safety, Air District, Water District, Army Corps of Engineers, etc.) are required.
For questions on whether your project will require a permit, applicants are encouraged to contact the Port Permits Desk at (562) 283-7102 or HDPdesk@polb.com, with any questions.
