In New Jersey, transmission is regulated by local governments with oversight from the [[New Jersey Board of Public Utilities]] (BPU). A developer must obtain permission from the [[New Jersey Board of Public Utilities]] before constructing a transmission facility, if the project crosses one or more municipalities or if the developer is unable to obtain local approvals. [[New Jersey– N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 48 et seq., Public Utilities|N.J. Stat. Ann. § 48:7-1]].
Overview of the permit or section being discussed.
==8-NJ-a.1 to 8-NJ-a.2 – Does the Project Cross More Than One Municipality?==
If a project crosses multiple municipalities, then the project is exempt from municipal land use requirements and the developer must seek approval from the [[New Jersey Board of Public Utilities]] (BPU) prior to constructing a transmission facility. [[New Jersey– N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 40:55D et seq., Municipal Land Use Law|N.J. Stat. Ann. § 40:55D-19]].
If the project does not cross multiple municipalities, then the applicable local government regulates the transmission siting. The developer should contact review the local land use plans and contact the local government with jurisdiction of the transmission siting for about the approval process.

==8-NJ-a.4 to 8-NJ-a.5 – Review Petition Materials for Completeness==
The New Jersey BPU reviews Petition materials for technical and administrative completeness. If the Petition is incomplete, the applicant (developer) should provide any additional information requested and resubmit the Petition to BPU.
==8-NJ-a.6 – Give Notice of the Hearing to All Impacted Municipalities==
Before holding a hearing on the Petition regarding the construction of the proposed transmission line, the BPU must give notice of the hearing to all impacted municipalities. [[New Jersey– N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 40:55D et seq., Municipal Land Use Law|N.J. Stat. Ann. § 40:55D-19]].
==8-NJ-a.7 to 8-NJ-a.9 – Hold Hearing on the Petition==
Upon receipt of the Petition, the BPU sets a date for, and initiates a hearing to consider the Petition. The BPU may only approve a Petition if the BPU determines that the development “is reasonably necessary for the service, convenience or welfare of the public.”. [[New Jersey– N.J. Stat. Ann. §§ 40:55D et seq., Municipal Land Use Law|N.J. Stat. Ann. § 40:55D-19]].
==8-NJ-a.10 – Appeal Decision (If Applicable)==
