Upon the consent of the planning commission, any petition for an amendment may be withdrawn upon the written application of a majority of all the persons who signed such petition. Where an amendment has been referred by the board of supervisors to the planning commission for a report, such report shall be made to the board of supervisors within forty days. Failure to do so shall be deemed an approval of the proposed regulation or amendment by the planning commission.
