It is also important to note that any appeal to the Building Appeals Board against a decision of the relevant building surveyor refusing to extend the completion date on a building permit must be filed with the Board before the permit lapses and otherwise within 30 days after the day you are in receipt of the relevant building surveyor’s refusal or deemed refusal.
