(c) If the three-year permit construction period has elapsed and a permit extension has not been requested, or has been requested and denied, the permit shall expire. To continue or resume construction, the lot or site owner shall submit an application for a new permit and fee, with supporting documentation, as set forth in this chapter.

(d) Lot subdivision or lot consolidation permits shall expire two years from the date of execution unless final municipal approval is obtained for the subdivision or consolidation within that period.

(e) Temporary driveway permits shall expire one year from the date of execution. No extensions of time shall be allowed. The temporary driveway shall be removed prior to the expiration of the permit, which shall establish the date for removal. The permit shall also address the restoration of the State highway ROW.
