Making a Building Regs Apllication

A 'Full Plans Application' should be submitted to your local authority before you start building (often along with the planning application).

The application should include:

  • Application form
  • Plan fee (see section on costs)
  • Drawings two sets of detailed scale drawings with relevant notes on or attached and showing service locations.
  • Structural calculations/site investigations, depending on design and condition of site. Check with your local authority.

The council will acknowledge receipt of your application, from which time they will assign a Building Inspector to your case. They will have up to five weeks in which to assess your proposals and issue either an approval or refusal notice. 
If your application conforms to Building Regulations Standards you will be issued an Approval Notice which may have conditions attached. Benfield ATT can help you with this.
