(A) A permit to erect, construct, or redevelop a permanent structure which lies or will lie, in whole or in part, in a lake Erie coastal erosion area shall be issued by the director after approval of the application required by rule 1501-6-23 of the Administrative Code. The permit shall be valid for a period of two years from the date of issue unless specified otherwise pursuant to provisions of this rule. No construction shall be performed until the permit is issued by the director.
(B) The permit shall include conditions, as necessary, to assure that construction of the permanent structure and any erosion control measure is in compliance with the approved application.
(C) If the proposed construction schedule required by rule 1501-6-23 of the Administrative Code exceeds a period of two years, the director may issue, on written request of the applicant, a permit which is valid for a longer period.
(D) If the permit expires before construction has begun, no construction shall be performed, and a new application with supporting information, as prescribed by rule 1501-6-23 of the Administrative Code, shall be submitted for renewed consideration.
(E) If, after construction has begun, a revised construction schedule shows that the permit will expire before construction is completed, the director, on written request of the applicant, may extend the life of the permit. No extension shall be granted unless the applicant has demonstrated to the satisfaction of the director that substantial effort has been made to complete the construction.
(F) A single permit may be issued to an applicant for the purpose of authorizing the erection, construction, or redevelopment of more than one permanent structure on a single parcel or on contiguous parcels of property owned by the applicant.
