NYC DOB: No Waiver for Sidewalk Shed Work Without a Permit – Civil Penalties
Beginning September 1, 2023, the Department of Buildings will no longer waive the Work Without a Permit civil penalty for installed permitted sidewalk sheds with an expired permit. See Title 1 of the Rules of the City of New York Section 102-04(d)(5).
The EXP1 waiver request reason on the L2 form and the Civil Penalties Review Request (L2) in DOB NOW will exclude a sidewalk shed that was installed with a permit and the permit has expired.
The EXP1 waiver request reason will still be available for other temporary construction equipment installed with a valid permit and the permit has expired, including construction fences, scaffolds, railings, catch platforms, over-the-sidewalk chutes, footbridges, etc.
The updated L2 form dated Rev. 8/23, is available at nyc.gov/buildings. The L2 form dated Rev. 7/19 will not be accepted after August 31, 2023.
