Issued Building Permits

How long is an issued building permit valid? Can I request an extension if circumstances beyond my control have prevented my project from progressing?

Generally, issued building permits are valid if the building or work authorized by a permit is started within 180 days from the date of permit issuance or, if after the work has started, the building or work authorized by the permit is not suspended or abandoned for a period in excess of 180 days. If you run out of time, you may submit a written request for an extension to avoid the permit from expiring. Please see our Extension Request Form for Building Applications and Permits
