Land Use General Permits-by-Certification
General permits-by-certification are available only for certain regulated activities and include strict limitations that allow an applicant to file an application and receive an automatic approval. The applicant must certify that the activity meets the tight conditions of the permit, so there is no need for a case-by-case application review. However, the online process provides the Department with a complete record of the proposed activity, including the location and extent of the regulated activity and the applicant's contact information.
Please note that you must follow all instructions within the service and maintain a complete copy of the entire application, including all necessary notices to neighbors and municipalities.
The following checklists outline the submission requirements for all general-permits-by-certification:
Coastal General Permits-by-Certification (Checklists coming soon)
Freshwater Wetlands General Permits-by-Certification (Checklists coming soon)
Flood Hazard General Permits-by-Certification checklist table
