Once a Special permit is granted, how long does it take to obtain my building permit?

Chapter 40A Section 9 provides us with up to 65 days from the close of the hearing to record a Special permit with the Town Clerk. It can take up to 14 days from the date the Board approves the permit to write up the Final Decision and have it stamped in with the Clerk's Office. A 20-day appeal period follows after which time, if no appeals are filed, the Final Decision is sealed and forwarded to the applicant. The applicant must then have that document recorded at the Middlesex North County Registry of Deeds. They are then free to pursue their building permit (which may take up to an additional 30 days).
