How to withdraw an application

This tutorial explains how you can withdraw your application after it has been submitted.


  • On Cloudpermit, once an application has been submitted, it cannot be deleted. However, it can be withdrawn.
  • An application can only be withdrawn when it is under Submitted status. If the application enters in review status, it can no longer be canceled. 
  • The applicant of the application can only withdraw applications. However, the local government must confirm the withdrawal.

Step 1: Locate the desired application that appears under Submitted status in your Dashboard and click the Open workspace button on the application. 

You will navigate to the Application workspace.

Step 2: Navigate to the More Actions button. Open the drop-down menu by clicking the down-facing arrow on the right of the button. Select Withdraw the Application from the drop-down list.

Step 3: A confirmation notification pops up. Input the reason for the withdrawal in the text field and click Yes. 

You have now successfully requested for your application to be withdrawn. The local government must review your withdrawal request and ultimately accept it for the application to be withdrawn officially. 

If the municipality eventually accepts the application withdrawal request, the application dashboard should appear similar to the image below. 

Note that all application parties will receive an email notification from Cloudpermit notifying the withdrawal request and if the application is officially withdrawn.
