How long is a permit valid for?

Work authorized under a particular permit must begin within 6 months of the date of issuance. Once work begins, it must continue at a reasonable pace toward completion. Both permits and applications that are inactive for 6 months or more can be deemed expired. However, we evaluate each case as it is presented. Often, there can be justifiable causes for delays and we try to be as accommodating as possible, especially in cases where there are no effective changes to the codes or other regulations affecting the project.
