All construction-related permits have expiration dates. If a permit is about to expire and the permittee has not completed the work, the permittee must apply for a permit renewal as all work must be performed pursuant to an active permit at all times. The permittee may apply for a renewal online, or in-person by accessing either the Application to Renew Permits at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/permapprenew.pdf or the Application to Renew Governmental Permit(s) at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/govt_work_permit_renew_app.pdf. These forms may also be found in Appendix B, Forms. The permittee must attach a copy of the original permit to the application when it is submitted for renewal and all applicable reviews and fees will apply. This form cannot be used if the permit has already expired.
Permits that have expired may be reissued only within 30 days of expiration. The permittee may apply for a re-issuance online, or in-person by accessing either the Application to Re-Issue Permits at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/permappreissue.pdf or the Application to Re-Issue Governmental Work Permit(s) at http://www.nyc.gov/html/dot/downloads/pdf/govt_work_permit_reissue_app.pdf. These forms may also be found in Appendix B, Forms. Re-issued permits will not apply retroactively and are subject to new permit stipulations. The permittee must attach a copy of the original permit to the application when requesting a re-issuance and all applicable reviews and fees will apply. If the permit has been expired for more than 30 days , a new permit application must be submitted.
