Default Building on waterfront

I was looking at a waterfront home in Anne Arundel county, one of my main concerns is if I'll be able to build upon the home. I'd like to either add a story (it's currently 1 story home) and/or expand the floor plan horizontally (so the home would be no closer to the water). Any thought on whom/where I could contact to get an idea what the chances are of adding upon the home. It is currently fairly small (2br/1ba cottage), a far distance from the waterline, and on a large amount of property (about a half acre)?

Any thoughts on where I might begin my search?


Thanks,

Thanks,

Anne Arundel County Planning and Zoning.
You will have County requirements and the state Critical Areas regulations. This will include requirements on footprint, impervious surfaces, grading and the removal and replacement of vegetation.
