Except as otherwise provided for herein, all special permits, administrative permits, variances and similar special authorizations issued pursuant to this chapter shall lapse at the end of 18 months from the date thereof unless development of the land use activity has been substantially completed in accordance with all applicable building permits as determined by the appropriate Building Official. In making such determination, the following elements shall be considered:
