How long is my permit good for?

Permits expire and become null and void if work is not started and an inspection requested within 180 days from the issuance date of the permit. Once the permit has been issued, a permit continues to extend with every passing inspection. 

 Extensions may be granted upon request before the expiration of the permit and will be extended 90 days if approved. If the permit becomes expired, a completion may be re-open upon request for 6 months.
