Permit-by-rule (PBR) 15 - placement of sand fencing to create or sustain a dune

The PBR 15 authorizes the placement of sand fencing to create or sustain a dune, provided the sand fencing complies with the following:

  • Be placed on the landward side of the dune;
  • Be placed parallel to the mean high water line; and
  • Not prevent perpendicular public access to the beach.

Please be advised:

  • This PBR does not authorize the excavation or grading of a dune.

Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-4.15.

If your project does not meet the requirements of the PBR 1, 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.
