If an applicant cannot reconstruct a building or other project under the criteria for Permit by Rules or General Permit, they have the option of applying for an Individual Permit. The regulations sets forth Individual Permit Standards associated with either the location or a particular activity.
LOCATION: Standards associated with the location of a project in a particular regulated area, such as a channel or floodway, or the location of the project in relation to certain natural resources, are set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:13-10; and
ACTIVITY: Standards associated with a particular regulated activity, such as the construction of a building or roadway, are set forth at N.J.A.C. 7:13-11.
A regulated activity that requires an individual permit is typically subject to multiple requirements that are set forth throughout N.J.A.C. 7:13-10 and 11 as described above. The applicant shall evaluate each regulated activity according to its location, nature and potential impacts in order to determine which design and construction standards will apply to the applicant's particular project. Please see the relevant section of the rules and contact the Division for more information. Applicants are encouraged to request a pre-application meeting for these more complex permit authorizations.
