Any building or structure for which a building permit has been issued, and except for circumstances beyond the property owner’s control (e.g., labor strikes, inclement weather and the like), all construction work shall be diligently pursued to completion. The code inspectors may request documentation showing the cause for any delays. Any construction project, upon which no substantial work has been undertaken for a period of six months, shall be deemed abandoned. Upon any construction project being deemed abandoned, all buildings or structures not completed to the degree such buildings or structures have been indicated on the plans submitted in support of a building permit, and all building materials and construction equipment shall be removed from the site. The code inspectors may also require the structures to be secured from the elements.
