New Jersey Revised Statutes § 13:17-14 - Application For Subdivision, Site Plan Or Building Permit; Review And Approval

13:17-14. Application for subdivision, site plan or building permit; review and approval
(a) Each application for a subdivision, site plan or building permit shall be submitted to the commission for review and, where required, approval prior to approval by the local constituent municipal approving authority. Commission approval of any subdivision application shall be limited by and based upon the rules, regulations and standards established by and duly set forth in a resolution adopted by the commission. The constituent municipal approval authority shall defer taking final action on a subdivision application until receipt of the commission report thereon. The commission shall report to the municipal authority within 45 days from the date of receipt of the application. If the commission fails to report to the municipal approving authority within the 45-day period, said subdivision application shall be deemed to have been approved by the commission unless, by mutual agreement between the commission and municipal approving authority, with approval of the applicant, the 45-day period shall be extended for an additional 45-day period, and any such extension shall so extend the time within which a municipal approving authority shall be required by law to act thereon.

(b) The commission shall review each subdivision plan and building permit application and withhold approval if said application does not meet the approval standards previously adopted by the commission, in accordance with this section. In the event of the withholding of approval, or the disapproval of, any such application, the reasons for such action shall be set forth in writing and a copy thereof shall be transmitted to the applicant.
