Do permits expire? How do I extend the time period for my permit?

Expiration

For some permits – yes, such as special permits, site plans and subdivision approvals. The expiration will be listed in the conditions of the board’s decision.

Extension

Depending on the permit you can apply for a modification and request an extension on the period of time. This is typically done for subdivision permits. It is also important to ensure that a valid site plan be on file with the Town which may require a similar modification so that you have time to complete the project.
