COASTAL GENERAL PERMIT 24 - Legalization of the filling of tidelands

The Coastal General Permit 24 authorizes the legalization of the filling of any lands formerly flowed by the tide, provided:    

  • The filling occurred after 1914.
  • The fill appears on the applicable Tidelands Map adopted by the Tidelands Resource Council (base map photography dated 1977/78.
  • Public access must be provided in accordance with N.J.A.C. 7:7E-3.50 and 8.11.
  • The legalization of filling of tidelands for a single family home that is not part of a larger development may qualify for a permit-by-rule, see N.J.A.C. 7:7-7.2(a)9.

You can read the full details in the rule at N.J.A.C.7:7-7.24.

If your project does not meet the requirements or limitations of Coastal General Permit 24, it may qualify for a permit-by-rule, other general permit, or a Waterfront Development Individual Permit.  Please review those tabs under Coastal Permitting for additional information.
