This guide is for anyone who is planning to construct, reconstruct, relocate, or enlarge one or two single-family homes or duplexes and/or any accessory development in the CAFRA area. The guide explains: when a CAFRA permit is required for your activity; the type(s) of CAFRA permit(s) you will need; all of the relevant CAFRA permit procedures and requirements, including permit fees; and the CAFRA permit application review process, including processing times.
The Department has published a new Technical Manual regarding the Flood Hazard Area Control Act (FHACA) Rules to foster greater understanding of the regulatory standards and information required to obtain a permit under these rules. The FHACA Rules establish stringent standards for development in and adjacent to the regulated waters of New Jersey to protect people and property from the negative impacts of flooding and to maintain stable and healthy riparian ecosystems. This manual supplements the FHACA Rules by explaining rule provisions and guiding potential applicants in how to meet those standards and demonstrate compliance in a permit application. Should you have any questions regarding this Technical Manual, please contact Pete DeMeo at 609-292-1932.
