A phased approval allows you to submit your construction plans for a new building in multiple phases instead of submitting a complete set of plans at once. For example, some states in the US allow Phased Plan Approvals.
The building permit can be issued until a specific process phase, such as foundations and footings, and the following phases are applied and approved later.
Each later phase needs a separate submission of application and plans, a review, approval, or a permit.
The phased permit is supplemental to the primary building permit, i.e., numbering is a revision of the prior building permit.
The Phased Plan Approval will be initiated from the building permit under the "Work" phase in Cloudpermit. The applicant provides the required parties and attachments to the application. After the applicant has signed off and paid the Phased Plan Approval, it is ready to be submitted to the local government authority for further review and approval.
