Permits, Licenses, and Leases
The following provides an overview of access documents issued by NCTD and a description of each standard form of agreement that you will be expected to sign if you wish to enter NCTD property.
Right of Entry Permits allow a third-party access to NCTD owned property for a specified period of time to accomplish a specified activity, which generally involves construction work or construction related design services.
Licenses allow a third-party to construct a facility such as pipelines or wirelines on NCTD owned property. All license agreements include a provision that the facility will be removed or relocated within 30 days if NCTD requires the property for transportation purposes. Under a license agreement the licensee will be charged an annual license fee.
Leases allow a third-party to use NCTD owned property on a long-term basis. All lease agreements include a provision that the lessee must vacate the premises within 30 days if NCTD requires the property for transportation purposes. Under a lease agreement the lessee will be charged a monthly rental payment.
Special Event Permits allow a third-party to access NCTD owned property for a specific purpose when a lease is not appropriate. This type of permit would allow non-continuous occupancy. This is a short-form permit and cannot be used for any construction activities, surveying, potholing, boring, environmental analysis, etc.
Submittals should be sent electronically to the Real Estate Manager and must include:
- NCTD Encroachment Application

Typical review period is 4-6 weeks.
An agreement will only be issued once NCTD has reviewed and approved your submittal, collects the required fees and deposit, and receives evidence of NCTD established liability insurance.
