 NCDENR Permit Handbook

Overview

This permit directory, produced by the N.C. Department of Environment and Natural Resources, centralizes all of the department’s permit information. It is a guide that covers North Carolina’s most commonly required environmental permits, licenses, certifications, approvals, etc. By using this handbook, NCDENR hopes that you can quickly gain an initial understanding of regulatory requirements for various permitted activities.

While every effort has been made to make this handbook informative and inclusive, it does not replace the need to verify with a regional environmental assistance coordinator or a division staff representative exactly which permits are needed for a specific project. You may click here to determine the contact information for your local environmental assistance coordinator.
The department’s statewide coordinators can develop a comprehensive permit list, which takes into account your own project and site-specific information. Remember, it is the responsibility of the customer to contact the appropriate NCDENR staff to ensure all necessary permits are obtained prior to beginning the project.

If you have comments or suggestions to improve the usefulness of this guide, contact: Alison Davidson at or (828) 296-4698, Environmental Assistance Coordinator, with the Division of Environmental Assistance and Customer Service
