14.1 There is a two-year deadline for utilising an area allotment for construction works that require a planning permission. The application for planning permission is to be submitted no later than one year after the granting of area allotment. The application for commissioning is to be submitted within two years of the date of area allotment, cf. to section 47 of the Act on spatial planning and land use. In case of major building or construction projects, the municipal council may extend the deadline for utilization of an area allotment to the area concerned for one year at a time (§ 46).

14.3 An unutilised area allotment is annulled without notice if the stipulated deadline of the area allotment is exceeded. If the municipal council has granted an extended deadline for utilization of land allocation, cf. 14.1 above, the right of use of the area concerned may not be terminated unless the rights owner has failed to comply with a ruling for the usage of the area.
14.4 If a deadline is exceeded for a utilised area allotment, the municipal council takes step to bring matters into compliance, according to planning and area legislation.

The application is to include a documented time schedule and activity plan.
