Attention all Municipal Officials and Environmental Professionals:
In an effort to provide a higher quality, more streamlined permitting process for the regulated public, most Land Resources Management Programs (Alteration of Terrain Bureau, Subsurface Systems Bureau, Wetlands Bureau and the Shoreland Program) have updated their permit application forms. If you provide permit applications to the public or submit permit applications to DES, please take a moment to discard old permit application forms and ensure you have the newest versions. All current application forms are available at their respective DES web pages and have a revision date of 01/01/2012 located within the footnote. As of April 1, 2012, the Land Resources Management Programs will no longer be accepting outdated permit application forms. Going forward, all LRMP application forms will be simultaneously updated every 6 months.
Land Resources Management, a subsection of the Water Division, coordinates communication and resources across those bureaus and programs that regulate land development projects that may impact state aquatic resources. For more information, please visit the NH DES Land Resources Management web page at: http://des.nh.gov/organization/divisions/water/lrm/index.htm.
**** ALSO: The new wetlands permit application, a single application form, now includes all three project types, expedited review minimum impact, standard review minimum impact and standard review minor or major impact.
