Apply for Building Regulations approval

There are two options when submitting an application for Building Regulations approval - Full Plans and Building Notice. For more details and to apply, please see below.

There are two stages with this type of application:

  1. We check the plans you submit and assess the proposed works against the Building Regulations. Where the proposed works comply with the Building Regulations, we will approve those plans submitted to us. You can then pass these to your builder to start work.
  2. Once we have approved the plans and work has commenced, we will inspect the work at appropriate stages.

Full Plans (Building Regulations application form).

With this type of application:

  • We only carry out the site inspections required to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations.
  • We will not check the design of the development before work starts. As such, you must be confident that your builder is familiar with the requirements of the Building Regulations. Otherwise, you may find that changes are required during construction which could result in extra costs.
  • You can start work as soon as we have acknowledged your application.

If you have already carried out the works and are now looking to confirm that it complies with the Building Regulations, you need to submit an application for regularisation.
