Please be aware that the Permit Extension Act is expiring on December 31, 2015. The clock will begin to run again on January 1, 2016 and no approvals will extend beyond June 30, 2016 unless the approval would have extended beyond June 30, 2016 without the benefit of the Act. If you have an approval that it is on the verge of expiring, you might be wondering what the next steps should be. In general, your two options are to either start the project or request an extension from the board or agency which granted the approval.
With regard to calculating time frames of an approval, please see the following (assume the life of the approval is for 1 year):
Date of Approval Expiration of Approval
April 1, 2006 March 31, 2016
June 10, 2009 June 30, 2016
December 30, 2014 December 30, 2016
