Permit-by-rule (PBR) 9 - previous filling of tidelands associated with an existing single-family home or duplex

  • Where a single-family home or duplex is proposed or exists on a lot which was previously filled and is not part of a larger development, the prior filling of any lands on the lot formerly
    flowed by the tide shall be considered by the Department to be authorized under this PBR, provided the filling appears on the applicable Tidelands Map.

Please be advised:

  • This PBR applies only if a tidelands instrument has been obtained for all filled tideland areas.

Full details are provided at N.J.A.C.7:7-4.9.

If your project does not meet the requirements of the PBR 9, it may qualify for a General Permit or an Individual Permit.  Additional information on these permit types can be found on the Coastal Permitting page.
