Extends expiration date of certain permits for one year in nine Superstorm Sandy-impacted counties.
On June 30, 2016 Governor Christie signed A-3617/ S- 2390 into law (P.L.2016, c.14). The law further extends the original Permit Extension Act of 2008 (PEA) by one year for the nine specific counties. Deemed as impacted by Superstorm Sandy, the nine designated counties are defined as: Atlantic, Bergen, Cape May, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean, and Union counties.
The “Permit Extension Act of 2008,” P.L.2008, c.78, originally suspended the running period of certain government approvals until July 1, 2010. PEA was updated four additional times in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2016. However, P.L. 2016, c.14 applies only to and suspends the running period of certain government approvals concerning land located in the Superstorm Sandy-impacted counties until December 31, 2016.
When Will My Permit Expire?
The law applies only to the nine designated counties. Any permit in the remaining 12 counties is not subject to the 2016 extension. For those nine counties, permits are extended for certain approvals issued by state and local government from January 1, 2007 through December 31, 2016. There is a tolling provision in the law that provides that no approval will be extended beyond the six months after the conclusion of the extended timeframe or June 30, 2017.
