Permit Extension Act

On December 26, 2014, the Permit Extension Act of 2008 at N.J.S.A. 40:55D-136.2 through 6 was further amended by P.L. 2014, c. 84. This Act (“PEA 2014”) further extended, among other approvals, center designations in municipalities that had submitted an application for plan endorsement to the State Planning Commission as of March 15, 2007, and were in compliance with the prior rules at N.J.A.C. 7:7E-5B.6. In accordance with P.L. 2014, c. 84, these mainland coastal centers now expire March 15, 2016.

Notice of Rule Proposal
Flood Hazard Area Control Act rules, N.J.A.C. 7:13

The Department is proposing comprehensive amendments to the Flood Hazard Area Control Act Rules to reduce unnecessary regulatory burden, add appropriate flexibility, provide better consistency with Federal, local, and other State requirements, and address implementation issues identified since the chapter’s repeal and re-promulgation in November 2007.  Please see the public notice for more information. Please see the FHA Rule FAQ for answers to common questions about the rule proposal.

About the Division: Managing New Jersey’s land is a critical function of the Department of Environmental Protection’s overall environmental protection strategy. In recognition of the intimate tie between land use and the health and quality of our streams, estuaries, coastal waters, wetlands, wildlife habitat and our drinking water, the New Jersey legislature has charged the Department with regulating land use activities.

The Department’s Division of Land Use Regulation fulfills this obligation by regulating land use activities through a permit process in accordance with the rules promulgated in support of the following statutes: Freshwater Wetlands Protection Act (N.J.S.A. 13:9B et seq.), Flood Hazard Area Control Act (N.J.S.A. 58:16A), Wetlands Act of 1970 (N.J.S.A. 13:9A-1 et. seq.), Coastal Area Facility Review Act (N.J.S.A. 13:19-1 et seq.), Waterfront Development Law (N.J.S.A. 12:5-3), Tidelands Act (N.J.S.A. 12:3), NJ Water Pollution Control Act (N.J.S.A. 58:10A et seq.), and the Highlands Water Protection and Planning Act (P.L. 2004, c.120).
