How to Withdraw Applications


On Cloudpermit, once an application has been submitted, it cannot be deleted, however, it can be withdrawn. An application can only be withdrawn when it is under submitted status. In other words, once the application enters in review status, it can no longer be withdrawn. Furthermore, applications can only be withdrawn by the applicant of the application. For an application withdrawal to be successful, the municipality needs to confirm the withdrawal. In other words, applicants can only request for applications to be withdrawn, and a municipality will ultimately need to accept the request.
