Land Use Management is responsible for regulating land use activities with the potential to exacerbate flooding and to impact the health and quality of our streams, estuaries, coastal waters, wetlands, wildlife habitat, and drinking water.

 

The Office of Policy and Coastal Management (PCM) plays four major roles in this objective:

Rulemaking

 

PCM's Rule Team develops the regulations for permitting activities in the three major land use areas – the coastal area, freshwater wetlands, and flood hazard areas.

Education and Outreach

 

PCM’s education and outreach initiative promotes increased public awareness and knowledge of the current land use rule changes, application process, and permitting as well as the importance of ensuring our environment for future generations.

Coordination

 

The importance and intricacy of regulating land use activities requires the involvement of a number of offices, agencies, and other entities on the State, Federal, and local levels. PCM helps harmonize the activities and concerns of these various groups.

Mitigation Council & Banking

 

PCM plays two roles in the management of mitigation activities – serving as the staff to the Wetlands Mitigation Council and overseeing all mitigation bank projects.

PCM is also Land Use Management’s point of contact for all proposed living shorelines projects. Living shorelines are a  nature-based shoreline management practice for the protection, restoration, or enhancement of vegetated shorelines, beaches, and habitat in the littoral zone through the strategic placement of plants, stone, sand, or other structural and organic materials. Questions can be directed to Jill Aspinwall.

  • July 1, 2019 – Notice of Request for Approval of Routine Program Change for Coastal Management Program

Federal regulations require states with approved coastal management programs to submit any changes or amendments to their coastal management programs to the NOAA so that they can determine if the program, after the change, remains approvable.

 

In compliance with these regulations, the Department is proposing to modify the Federally approved New Jersey Coastal Management Program (NJCMP) to incorporate regulatory amendments to the Coastal Zone Management (CZM) Rules, N.J.A.C. 7:7, adopted by the Department from June 2016 through January 2018, that address riparian zones, building standards in V zones and coastal A zones, coastal wetlands maps, public notice for maintenance dredging, and regulatory amendments made in response to issues identified through stakeholder outreach and to address other issues that have arisen since the July 6, 2015 adoption of the consolidated coastal rules.

 

For more information, visit the NJCMP website.
