This article presents a brief theoretical discussion of the National Environmental Policy, its control mech-anisms and their applicability in the environmental licensing process for real estate, since the construction industry is considered one of the most degrading the environment. The aim of this study therefore is to analyze the environmental licensing of real estate projects as preservation tool of natural resources, in the periods from 2003 to 2014 in the municipality of Resende/RJ. The methodology was the literature review, document analysis and use of GIS and Geo Resende- Google Earth to determine the irregular occupation of land situated in fragile considerable areas. The result points to the contradictory licensing process by the municipality, such as preservation tool of natural resources, serving only as a bureaucratic obstacle for entrepreneurs.
