COASTAL GENERAL PERMIT 22 –  Avian nesting structures

The Coastal General Permit 22 authorizes construction of pile supported nesting structures.  The particulars of this general permit include:  

  • The construction (including access for machinery) must not alter or impair the natural contour or vegetation of the wetlands.
  • Any disturbance to wetlands is restored except for those permanently impacted by the pilings.
  • The construction of the nesting structure must not have an adverse impact on Special Areas defined at N.J.A.C. 7:7E-3.

You can read the full details in the rule at N.J.A.C.7:7-7.22.

If your project does not meet the requirements or limitations of Coastal General Permit 22, it may qualify for a permit-by-rule, other general permit, or a CAFRA or Waterfront Development Individual Permit.  Please review those tabs under Coastal Permitting for additional information.
