REDUCED ESTIMATES FOR WHAT EVER REASON CANNOT BE ACCEPTED

Building Regulations - Part P registered electricians

To reflect the Local Authorities costs, if relevant electrical work is carried out using a qualified Part P registered electrician the standard charges are significantly reduced.

A supplementary inspection or Building Notice charge will not apply when any notifiable electrical work is carried out using a Part P registered electrician or if the only electrical work carried out is non-notifiable (your electrician should be aware of the definition of non-notifiable work).

A Part P registered electrician is a qualified electrician who also has the necessary Building Regulations knowledge to enable his accreditation body to certify his work. If anyone other than a Part P registered electrician undertakes the electrical work the reduced charge is not applicable.

Building Regulations - getting help with fees and charges

  • The charges for Building Regulations work are required to cover the cost of the service with the exception of work that is carried out for the benefit of a disabled person which is therefore exempt for the charges.
  • If the charge for your Building Regulation work is not listed as a standard charge it will need to be individually determined.

If your work is defined as requiring an individual assessment of the charge, please contact Building Control by emailing buildingcontrol@peterborough.gov.uk or calling 01733 453422. It would be helpful if you could provide a detailed description of the proposed works.
