As a buyer of Ocracoke Island Real Estate, you may be confused by the many agencies we must interface with as we process the sale of a property. To help you understand the acronymns, roles and regulations in operation, we have put together this brief description.

For a small island, Ocracoke has many masters to serve on the local, county, state and federal levels. 

These entities locally include:  the Ocracoke Planning Board, Subdivision Ordinances, and Ocracoke Building Code.

On a county level, we must meet regulations of the Hyde County Health Department for septic and waste treatment, well drilling, and building inspection.  Other Hyde County governmental agencies we deal with include the Tax office and Register of Deeds.

On the State level as an area of environmental concern (AEC) we come under the jurisdiction of the NC Dept of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR)- Division of Coastal Management.  The agencies within this Dept include CAMA ( Coastal Area Management Act); Division of Water Quality Certification; Dredge and Fill Act; and Easement in Public Trust areas. 

On the Federal Level, we are regulated by the Army Corp of Engineers who are influenced by the Environmental Protection Agency, National Marine Fisheries Service, and the Fish and Wildlife Service.
