Building permits extended for one year

CHARLOTTE – Charlotte and the six other municipalities in Mecklenburg County are allowing building permits not to expire.
The lack of credit and dismal prospects for sales led many developers in 2008 and 2009 to delay or to postpone previously approved projects. The development community felt that with the passage of time and no action on the developers’ part, permits would expire causing increased costs when new permits were sought.
The General Assembly’s “Permit Extension Act” extended most state and local development approvals that were valid between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2010.
The legislature has extended the act for another year a provision that allowed for any local government to opt-out. But all municipalities in the county will not opt-out of the extension.
