DNREC Permit Tracking Dashboard

The Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control (DNREC) is committed to providing timely and complete review of all applications for permits and licenses.

As of the Third Quarter, 2018

The Department collects tracking data from DNREC permitting programs, by Division, regarding numbers of applications submitted and the time it takes to process those applications.

These data are for the 12-month period ending on the last day of the reporting quarter (October 1, 2017 through September 30, 2018).

The Department also posts detailed data about some permitting and licensing programs, environmental monitoring, grants and rebates, and more on the Delaware Open Data Portal.

Inland Bay Shellfish Aquaculture Leases 22 19 3 184 n/a

Note: Shellfish leases go through a multi-stage process which can involve reviews by other programs within DNREC and always includes time taken by applicants, after preliminary approval, to secure logistical and business resources prior to final review by the department. There is no set target number of days to process, because each application is evaluated on its own merits, and some require longer evaluation, or more communication with the applicant or other sections/agencies.
