The Broward County Board of Commissioners established Chapter 27 of the Broward County Code also known as the Broward County Natural Resource Protection Code to protect and preserve the natural resources of Broward County. Section 27-66 of the code requires that any persons wanting to "develop, construct or alter any real property, structure or facility" must obtain environmental review approval of the appropriate construction plans.

We process applications for approval required by Sec. 27-66 and make sure these projects are in compliance with Broward County's Natural Resource Protection Code.

It is the final check that the county performs before the construction of a project to assure that all the appropriate Environmental construction licenses and approvals have been issued and is a requirement of the Florida Building Code, Section 104.3. In addition it is also an opportunity to inform the applicant of any environmental operation licenses which will be required when the project is complete and to add the facility to a compliance list for follow up by the appropriate environmental program.

A list of projects that need environmental review approval prior to issuance of any permit or approval by a County or Municipal Agency in accordance with section 27-66 of the code can be found in the Environmental Review Approval Guide.
