What if I have a delay?
Plans reviewed and permits issued are valid for 180 days per the FBC. Failure to activate a permit within that window will result in the project file being closed. Resubmission of new plans will be required under a new permit. Verifiable commencement of work and required inspections must be initiated and maintained in a timely manner. Open permits with inactivity exceeding 180 days will be closed and the permit voided. Extensions not exceeding 90 days may be available by submitting a request in writing to the building official.
