A permit is a license to proceed with the work and not an authority to violate, cancel, alter, or set aside any provisions of the technical codes. It shall not
prevent the Building Official from requiring correction of error in plans, construction or violation of any Code. Every permit shall become invalid unless
the work authorized by such permit is commenced within six months of permit issuance. Ordinance #2015-2053 states:
If work has commenced and the
permit is revoked, becomes null and void, or expires because of lack of progress or abandonment pursuant to the provisions of the Florida Building
Code, a new permit covering the proposed construction must be obtained before proceeding with the work. If a new permit is not obtained within 30 days
from the date the initial permit became null and void, the building official is authorized to require that any work which has been commenced or completed
be removed from the building site. Alternately, a new permit may be issued on application, providing the work in place and required to complete the
structure meets all applicable regulation in effect at the time the initial permit became null and void and any regulations which may have become
effective between the date of expiration and the date of re-issuance. The extension shall be requested in writing to the Building Official. Failure to obtain
an approved inspection within 180 days of the previous approved inspection shall constitute suspension or abandonment. (FBC 2010, Chapter 1 Section
