Time may be running out for 15 developments in Sussex County.
They have until July 1st to demonstrate that they have begun major work at the site.
Otherwise their land use permits will expire.
This would affect nearly 16-hundred homes.
The Wilmington News Journal reports that the County Council issued extensions this week for these projects -- many of which -- were begun in the mid-2-thousands just before the Great Recession decimated the housing market.
The council denied extension for five projects.
