Are residents allowed to build piers completely across Davis Canal in Oak Island?

The legality of the bridges that currently run from the beach side to the other side of Davis Canal in Oak Island is being studied by the state, according to Steve Everhart, N.C. Division of Coastal Management district manager.

For any bridges or structures on land, permits have to be issued by the town.

However, over water, permits must be applied for, Everhart said.

He said that he did not know if the walkways have been permitted to individuals.

He said they were only being studied at this time and no decision had been made by the state office that he was aware of.
