40:55D-133.Extension of approval; exceptions
4. a. For any government approval which expired or is scheduled to expire during the economic emergency, that approval is automatically extended until December 31, 1996, except as otherwise provided hereunder. Nothing in this act shall prohibit the granting of such additional extensions as are provided by law when the extensions granted by this act shall expire.
b. Nothing in this act shall be deemed to extend or purport to extend any permit issued by the government of the United States or any agency or instrumentality thereof, or to any permit by whatever authority issued of which the duration of effect or the date or terms of its expiration are specified or determined by or pursuant to law or regulation of the federal government or any of its agencies or instrumentalities.
c. Nothing in this act shall be deemed to extend any permit or approval issued pursuant to the "Pinelands Protection Act," P.L.1979, c.111 (C.13:18A-1 et seq.) if the extension would result in a violation of federal law, or any State rule or regulation requiring approval by the Secretary of the Interior pursuant to Pub.L.95-625 (16 U.S.C. 471 (i)).
d. This act shall not affect any administrative consent order issued by the Department of Environmental Protection in effect or issued during the period of the economic emergency, nor shall it be construed to extend any approval in connection with a resource recovery facility as defined in section 2 of P.L.1985, c.38 (C.13:1E-137).
e. In the event that any permit extended pursuant to the "Permit Extension Act," P.L.1992, c.82 (C.40:55D-130 et seq.) was based upon the connection to a sanitary sewer system, the permit's extension shall be contingent upon the availability of sufficient capacity, on the part of the treatment facility, to accommodate the development whose approval has been extended. If sufficient capacity is not available, those permit holders whose permits have been extended shall have priority with regard to the further allocation of gallonage over those permit holders who have not received approval of a hookup prior to the enactment of the "Permit Extension Act." Priority regarding the distribution of further gallonage to any permit holder who has received the extension of a permit pursuant to the "Permit Extension Act" shall be allocated in order of the granting of the original approval of the connection.
f. This act shall not extend any approval issued under the "Municipal Land Use Law," P.L.1975, c.291 (C.40:55D-1 et seq.) in connection with an application for development involving a residential use where, subsequent to the expiration of the permit but prior to January 1, 1992, an amendment has been adopted to the master plan and the zoning ordinance to rezone the property to industrial or commercial use when the permit was issued for residential use.
g. In the case of any approval issued under the "Municipal Land Use Law," P.L.1975, c.291 (C.40:55D-1 et seq.) which is extended pursuant to P.L.1992, c.82 (C.40:55D-130 et seq.), a municipality may disapprove such an extension of approval for the period beyond January 1, 1996, if, subsequent to January 1, 1992, but prior to July 1, 1994, an amendment has been adopted to the master plan and the zoning ordinance to change the use of the property for which the approval was issued to a use different from the use for which the approval was issued. A municipal disapproval pursuant to this subsection shall be made prior to June 30, 1995.
h. Nothing in this act shall be deemed to extend any permit issued pursuant to the "Coastal Area Facility Review Act," P.L.1973, c.185 (C.13:19-1 et seq.) that expires after December 31, 1994 but prior to January 1, 1997, if the permit was issued for a development located in the coastal area, as defined pursuant to section 4 of P.L.1973, c.185 (C.13:19-4), between the mean high water line of any tidal waters or the landward limit of a beach or dune, whichever is most landward, and a point 150 feet landward of the mean high water line of any tidal waters or the landward limit of a beach or dune, whichever is most landward.
i. This act shall not affect the terms or expiration date of any stipulation of settlement that was made or entered into during the economic emergency, provided that the stipulation of settlement involves a development which received preliminary major subdivision approval prior to January 1, 1979 in a municipality that has adopted a zoning change affecting the lot size and density of the development which is the subject of the stipulation of settlement after the date of the preliminary or final subdivision approval of that development, and provided further that the stipulation of settlement does not affect any housing constructed or rehabilitated in fulfillment of a fair share housing plan adopted pursuant to P.L.1985, c.222 (C.52:27D-301 et al.).
