Natural Resources Element (ENV)
The County’s rapid growth has been, and remains, in part driven by the beauty of its natural environment: the open spaces and abundant wildlife, mild climate, and the amenities and lifestyle associated with living on Florida’s coast.

The Natural Resources Element, along with the Coastal Planning Element, provides the underlying foundation for conservation and protection of our upland natural resources. Its purpose is to plan for, promote, and manage the conservation and protection of Charlotte County’s natural resources and to plan for and, when appropriate, restrict development activities where such activities would damage or destroy upland or coastal resources.
