GENERAL PERMIT 18 – Avian Nesting Structures

General Permit 18 authorizes the construction of pile supported avian nesting structures, provided:

  • The construction does not alter or impair the natural contour or vegetation of the wetland;
  • Disturbance to wetlands is restored except for those permanently impacted by the pilings; and
  • The nesting structure does not adversely impact special areas as defined at N.J.A.C. 7:7-9.

Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-6.18

If your project does not meet the requirements of the General Permit 18, it may qualify for another General Permit, Permit-by-rule, or an Individual Permit.  Additional information on these permit types can be found on the Coastal Permitting page.
