Important changes have been implemented in Florida regarding permits and approvals, prompted by the aftermath of Hurricanes Ian and Nicole in 2022, and outlined in Senate Bill 250. Under this new legislation, the extension period for specific permits, in the wake of a state of emergency declaration, has been extended from six to 24 months, with a maximum cap of 48 months for multiple natural emergencies. This significant extension, effective retroactively from September 28, 2022, aims to address the challenges posed by disaster recovery. Furthermore, the law mandates expedited processing for certain permits and restricts counties or municipalities within 100 miles of the hurricane landfall from imposing construction, reconstruction, or redevelopment moratoriums until October 1, 2024.
