Extension of New Jersey Freshwater Wetlands, Waterfront Development, and Coastal Areas Facilities Act (CAFRA) Approvals after June 30, 2016
The extended date of validity of approvals under the Permit Extension Act is June 30, 2016. For any wetlands approvals that can be further extended, you must request that extension at least 90 days prior to the expiration date. Therefore, the last date to request an extension for those approvals that expire June 30, 2016 is April 1, 2016. Any request for extension of Freshwater Wetlands Letters of Interpretation must be submitted prior to the expiration of the Letter of Interpretation, or by June 29, 2016. For CAFRA and Waterfront Development Permits, there is a more complex set of regulations since there are allowances for continued construction subsequent to the expiration date, five-year extensions under certain circumstance, etc.
