After the issuance of a building permit, the Superintendent of Building Inspection shall issue a stop work order whenever he or she finds, after inspection, that the site preparation or structure to be constructed, reconstructed, enlarged, changed, maintained, used, added to or altered does not comply with any of the provisions of the Planning and Zoning Code, this Building and Housing Code, any other applicable ordinance of the Municipality or any rule or regulation adopted pursuant to such Codes or ordinances, or when he or she finds that such work is proceeding in violation of the approved detailed statement of plans submitted for such work. The effect of such an order shall be limited to the matter specified therein.
Each stop work order shall specify what site preparations, additions or alterations to structures, plans, materials or procedures are necessary to bring the same into compliance with such Codes or ordinances.
Upon the issuance of any such stop work order, the person receiving such order shall cease work upon such site preparation or structure, as identified in the order, until such time as the appeal provided for in Section 1224.06 of the Planning and Zoning Code and all appeals from the hearing have been completed, or the stop work order has been released.
Failure to cease work after receipt of a stop work order is hereby declared to be a public nuisance.
