For a permit where work has not commenced within the period specified in section 220.127.116.11(a), a permittee may obtain a renewal permit provided:
(a) No changes have been made or will be made in the original plans and specifications for the work.
(b) Three years have not passed from the date the original permit was issued.
(c) The same edition of the County Building Code, County Residential Code, County Electrical Code, County Plumbing Code and County Mechanical ("County Construction Codes") are in effect as used in the original plan check and no relevant County ordinances, policies, rules or regulations have changed since the expiration of the permit. Where a later edition of the County Construction Codes have been adopted since the original plan check, renewal application shall be considered as a new plan check submittal. Accordingly, plans accompanying the renewal application shall reflect the requirements of the current County Construction Codes and relevant County ordinances, policies, rules or regulations in effect. A full new plan check fee shall be required and paid with the renewal application.
(d) After the plans have been approved, the applicant pays a fee equal to one-half the amount required for a new permit.
A person issued a renewal permit shall be required to show the building official substantial progress in the form of a valid inspection within the period specified in section 18.104.22.168(b). The first such period shall be measured from the date of renewal. A renewal permit issued under this section shall expire three years from the date the original permit was issued.
