The Army Corps of Engineers, which manages Kerr Lake, has now lifted the moratorium on new docks and dock changes there. The lifting on the moratorium coincides with the approval of the 2016 Shoreline Management Plan.

The new plan describes the types of private use allowed for boat docks, walkways, vegetative clearings, and erosion control structures. Shoreline allocations, rules, regulations and other information relative to use of the shoreline are addressed in detail.

Since January 17, 2014, the Army Corps stopped the issuance of new shoreline use permits and add-ons to existing permits pending approval of the 2016 plan.
