If rolling easements look promising and one has the legal authority, then the next step is to carefully plan the specifics about how it will work and where it should apply. This chapter addresses two key specifications of a rolling easement:
1. What is the boundary that rolls inland?
2. What restrictions should be imposed on the land inland and seaward of that boundary?
Chapter 7 considers where rolling easements might be most useful. Finally, chapters 8 and 9 examine the process for ensuring compliance, with a focus on recorded rolling easements.
