Express Permitting

The express permitting option offers a more timely review of certain environmental permits than the traditional permit review process. It offers quicker decisions on permits and certifications, as well as consultation to identify necessary requirements. A pre-application meeting is required, and a complete application, along with supporting technical information, is necessary for a thorough and swift review. Higher fees are charged to support additional staff for the express review. Multiple permits that may be required for a project can be reviewed concurrently.

Where applicable, the express permitting option will be denoted by the following phrase Express Option* at the top of each page in this directory. Please check with the regional permit assistance coordinator in your area for express permit options: portal.ncdenr.org/web/deao/ea/pa/express-permitting.
