When does my permit expire?
Permits become invalid if work has not started within 12 months of the date that the permit was approved, regardless of the date the permit was issued. In order to confirm that work has started on a project, an inspection must be performed by Construction Services. It is the owner’s responsibility to ensure that the appropriate inspections are scheduled for the permitted project.

One extension can be granted for an additional 12 month period if requested in writing by the owner at least 10 days in advance of the expiration of the approval and upon payment of the required extension fees.

If a project is delayed or suspended for more than 6 months after it started and an inspection has been performed by Construction Services, the permit approval becomes invalid. Up to 2 extensions can be granted for 6 months each if requested in writing by the owner at least 10 days in advance of the expiration of the approval and upon payment of the required extension fees. The extension periods begin no later than 6 months after the project started and an inspection was performed by Construction Services.
