CURRITUCK COUNTY, N.C. (WAVY) — You will need a parking permit if you’re looking to visit Currituck County’s beaches this summer.
Starting Friday and going through Labor Day, non-residents are required to have permits. It costs $50 dollars for a 10-day permit, and $150 dollars for a seasonal permit.
That’s the same price to drive on the beach along the Cape Hatteras National Seashore.
The Currituck County Board of Commissioners approved an ordinance requiring the permits back in March with a 5-1 vote.
The system will not apply to homeowners who live in the four-wheel drive access area.
Visitors looking to purchase a permit need to submit an application by mail or in person. More information about the county’s new system can be found at this link.
