How long does it take to get a permit?

Within 15 days after it receives your application, staff will notify you regarding whether the application is complete. If the application is not complete, staff will tell you precisely what additional information is needed. When the application is complete, the Agency has 90 days in which to approve the project and issue a permit, with or without conditions, or 60 days within which to notify you that a public hearing will be held before the Agency makes a decision. The Agency cannot disapprove any project without first holding a public hearing.

If there are no major concerns with your project, the review and approval process will usually be shorter than the 90 day limit.
