Extension of Time–Planning

An extension of time may be requested to comply with or implement any conditional land use decision made in accordance with provisions of the Development Code. A “conditional land use decision” includes land use actions such as Conditional Use Permits, Variances, and Tentative Maps. For questions as to whether an extension of time may be requested for other land use actions, please contact County staff at (909) 387-8311 (San Bernardino office) or (760) 995-8140 (Hesperia office).

A request for an extension of time shall be filed at least thirty days and no more than ninety days prior to the expiration date of an application. Any land use application for which an extension request has been filed within this time period shall not expire for sixty days or until an action is taken on the extension request, whichever occurs first. If approved, the extension shall commence on the expiration date, even if it is not approved until after the expiration date.

Where circumstances warrant, an extension of time may be granted for a period or periods not to exceed a total of thirty-six months. Under exceptional or extraordinary circumstances, another extension may be granted for projects other than those regulated by the State Subdivision Map Act.
