(b) Action on application. If the planning and building services official is satisfied that the proposed work conforms to the requirements of the code and ordinances applicable thereto, the official shall issue a permit therefor as soon as practicable.
(c) Validity of permit. The issuance or granting of a permit shall not be construed to be a permit for, or an approval of, any violation of any of the provisions of this code or of any other ordinance of the jurisdiction. Permits presuming to give authority to violate or cancel the provisions of this code or other ordinances of this jurisdiction shall not be valid. The issuance of a permit based on the application, sketch, and site plan or other construction documents shall not prevent the planning and building services official from requiring the correction of errors in the application or other data.

If an inspection has not been requested after 180 days of permit issuance and the permit has not been extended, the permit shall expire without notice. The planning and building services official is authorized to grant, in writing, one extension of time for a period of not more than 180 days. The extension shall be requested in writing and justifiable cause demonstrated.
