NJ Rev Stat § 27:7-95 (2015) What's This?

27:7-95. Expansion, change in use
a. Any property owner who expands or changes the use of property subject to an access permit issued before the effective date of this amendatory and supplementary act shall be required to file an application for a new access permit if the expansion or change in the use will result in a significant increase in traffic. Any increase in traffic that adds the greater of 100 movements during the peak hour, or 10 percent of the previously anticipated daily movements shall be considered significant. Any such property owner who has not been granted such a new access permit shall be subject to enforcement in accordance with subsection e. of section 4 of this amendatory and supplementary act.

b. When the commissioner either denies an application for an access permit in accordance with section 4 or 5 of this amendatory and supplementary act because alternative access is available, or revokes an existing permit in accordance with section 6 of this amendatory and supplementary act because alternative access is available, the decision of the commissioner as to the appropriate location for an access driveway shall be final, the action of any municipal or county body to the contrary notwithstanding.

Any subsequent county or municipal review of the development which may be required shall abide by the commissioner's decision on this matter. The county or municipality may require additions or changes in the design of the development in accordance with any applicable provisions of its development review ordinances; provided that such additional requirements do not conflict with the commissioner's decision.
