Building Control application forms

Last Modified October 19, 2015

There are now various ways for you to make your building application

Alternatively, you can download the forms and submit them to Building Control.

Full Plans applications

Full Plans applications require two copies of detailed architectural plans to be submitted along with a completed Full Plans application form and the appropriate fee. A formal decision notice will be issued. A further single fee covering all our inspection charges will be invoiced once work starts on site.

Building Notice applications

Building Notice applications must be accompanied by a site plan and the appropriate fee. Both inspection and application fees are payable in full at the time of submitting an application. However, if the work is on or includes premises designated under the Fire Precautions Act 1971 (such as offices, shops, hotels, etc.) a Full Plans application MUST be made.

Regularisation applications

Regularisation applications must be accompanied by plans and the appropriate fee. They are used if the work has already taken place and retrospective permission is required. This is applicable for any work undertaken after 1985. In order to verify that the work complies with the Building Regulations it will be necessary, in most cases, for elements of construction to be exposed for inspection on site.
