NJ Coastal Zone Management General Permits

General Permits provide a means to perform a variety of activities within regulated areas, provided all of the requirements, as detailed in the rule, are met for that specific General Permit.  If your project does not meet all of the requirements, an application for that General Permit will likely be denied.  Another General Permit, Permit-by-rule, or an Individual Permit may be required for your project.
