Following the Interdivisional Meeting, DCP will provide applicants with clear, written guidance on the land use and environmental applications. DCP suggests that any applicant that needs a Reasonable Worst Case Development Scenario for their project wait to prepare the land use application until after the applicant first meets with DCP’s Environmental Assessment and Review Division.
Draft land use applications should be prepared following the guidance discussed with DCP and as described in the Interdivisional Meeting minutes. Applicants should submit 3 paper copies and 1 digital copy of each application to the Lead Planner, or to Central Intake ONLY if the project is located in Manhattan. Draft CEQR Forms and Environmental Assessment Statements can be submitted to Central Intake in 2 paper copies and 1 digital copy.
Land use applications consist of a land use application form and attachments that clearly describe the proposed land use actions and any development that may be facilitated by, or approved, as a part of the proposed actions. Applicants may consider using the Applicant Maps Tool to produce some of the maps required as part of the land use applications. The tool makes the production of required maps less time consuming to prepare and eliminates the need for costly drafting or GIS software.
Note: Please be advised that all materials submitted to the New York City Department of City Planning (DCP) in connection with the application may be placed on the DCP website and used in DCP presentations regarding the application. These materials may also be subject to production by DCP pursuant to the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) in Article 6 of the Public Officers Law.
Applicants, with the exception of those noted below, are required to submit a Doing Business with the City Form with all application packages. A Doing Business with the City FAQ will assist you in filling out the form.
