Inland Wetlands Commission (IWC) Approval

  • If there are no known wetlands on the property, no Inland Wetland Commission review is required. The Wetlands Enforcement Officer can approve applications that do not involve impact on wetlands or watercourses or the associated upland review areas.
  • If the improvements to property involve activity in wetlands or watercourses or is adjacent to wetlands or watercourses, a review will be required. If the activity is within 100 feet of a watercourse or 75 feet of a wetland, application can be made with completion of the “Short Form”. This application will require complete engineering site plans for construction process, erosion and sediment control plans, drainage and final landscaping
  • If the property contains wetland and they will be disturbed either temporarily or permanently by the project, the “Long Form” is required. This will require complete engineering site plans for construction process, erosion and sediment control plans, drainage and final landscaping design.

Note: An IWC application can run concurrently with the Zoning Permit application.
