New Jersey Administrative Code
Section 16:47-9.1 - General provisions

Universal Citation: NJ Admin Code 16:47-9.1

Current through Register Vol. 56, No. 6, March 18, 2024

(a) Applications shall reflect current conditions, as they exist at the time of application, and shall include, as appropriate, all State, county, municipal, or private projects that have been advertised for construction or awarded in the vicinity of the proposed driveway or street. Information about currently advertised Department projects, those planned for advertisement, or those that have already been awarded can be found on the Department's website at: The Department's Bureau of Major Access Permits or Operations Permit Office and local governments should be contacted to determine if such projects may affect the application.

(b) If the lot or site is to be served by one or more driveways between it and the State highway, as well as non-State highway access, a description of the distribution of vehicles using State highway driveways and non- State highway access shall be provided.

(c) Prior to submitting any access application for development within the Pinelands Area, the Highlands Region, or the Hackensack Meadowlands District, a lot or site owner shall give required notice to the New Jersey Pinelands Commission, the New Jersey Highlands Council, or the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, as appropriate, pursuant to applicable law. The application submitted to the Department shall indicate the lot or site owner's compliance with any notice requirements.

(d) Subsequent to filing an access application, if an applicant unilaterally makes changes to either the size or type of land use, or design or location of proposed driveways or streets, thereby requiring re-review of the application by the Department, the access application shall be considered withdrawn. Once withdrawn, to be reconsidered, a new application and the appropriate fee shall be submitted. If the lot or site owner changes the proposed development or access plan in response to Department, municipal or county comments, a new application and fee will not be required.

(e) Applicants undertaking more than one activity that requires an access permit, such as driveway access, lot subdivision, or streets, shall submit a separate application for each activity. However, only one application fee will be required, which will be the highest applicable fee, pursuant to N.J.A.C. 16:47-9.8.
