Here’s a photo that purports to show what looks very much like a clearly illegal concrete seawall built in front of Parker Overton’s beachfront lot on Figure Eight Island. Overton has been very active in the move to overturn NC’s ban on building seawalls and jetties on the coast. Apparently this lFigure 8 lot is eroding and this (previously) hidden concrete seawall was constructed to stop that. One problem – such seawall construction, if indeed this qualifies as a seawall, is clearly not allowed on the NC coast. At the very least, this picture should prompt investigation into how this structure was built, who built it, and whether it violates NC’s seawall ban.
