Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How long is a permit good for?

A permit shall expire and become null and void if,
1) The work authorized by the permit is not started within 180 days of the date of permit issuance, or
2) The work is suspended or abandoned at any time after the work is started for a period of 180 days.

Before any work can recommence on an expired permit, a new permit will be required and a fee equal to 50% of the original permit fee shall be payable provided the suspension or abandonment has not exceeded one year. If the suspension or abandonment has exceeded one year, a new permit will be required and full permit fees shall be paid.
