How long are building permits good?

Substantial progress shall be determined by the request for and approval of subsequent required inspections from and by the Building Inspector respectively. In no case shall an active building permit for a residential dwelling last longer than 24 months without having received a certificate of occupancy or other final approval as outlined with the Wilson County Zoning Ordinance. If a permit recipient for a residential dwelling perceives that their construction project may last longer than 24 months, then special relief or variance from this provision will be required and the permit recipient will need to seek such relief from the Wilson County Board of Zoning Appeals.
