Permit-by-rule (PBR) 10 - construction of portion of boat ramp located landward of the mean high water line at a residential development

The PBR 10 authorizes the construction of the portion of a boat ramp landward of the mean high water line at a residential development, provided a waterfront development permit has been obtained for the construction waterward of the mean high water line.

Please be advised:

  • This PBR does not authorize a boat ramp located within wetlands.
  • The width of the boat ramp landward of the mean high water line shall not exceed the width of the boat ramp waterward of the mean high water line.
  • The waterfront development permit for the construction waterward of the mean high water line may include additional conditions on the upland construction to ensure compliance with this chapter.

Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-4.10.

If your project does not meet the requirements of the PBR 10, it may qualify for a General Permit or an Individual Permit.  Additional information on these permit types can be found on the Coastal Permitting page.
