This form can be completed by hand or electronically within word.





When you have established that your proposal to build, extend, alter or convert your property is subject to the Building Regulations, you or your agent (Architect, Builder, Developer etc), must notify the Local Authority by submitting a Full Plans application or giving a Building Notice.

If you choose to submit a full plans application, a Building Surveyor will examine your details and advise you of any changes required to meet the Building Regulations. Site inspections of work in progress will then be carried out by the Surveyor at the appropriate time for the various stages of the construction process.

If you choose to give a Building Notice, inspections of work in progress will be carried out by a Building Surveyor at the various stages of the construction process to ensure that the work already undertaken on site conforms to the Building Regulations. This carries the risk of non compliant work having to be rectified on site subsequent to the Surveyors inspections.

Please note that incomplete or unsigned applications or notices and those not accompanied by the appropriate fee are deemed as NOT being submitted and work should NOT commence on site.

These notes are for general guidance only. Particulars regarding the deposit of information are given in Regulation 12 of the Building Regulations 2010 (as amended).

If you have a query, need guidance at any stage of the design process including how to apply for approval, or require a fee quotation, please do not hesitate to Contact a member of the Building Control team.

Full Plans Application
In order to check your proposals for compliance with the Building Regulations as quickly as possible and to avoid unnecessary delays, we would ask that you supply the following information at the time of submitting your application:

The form is to be completed by the person who intends to carry out the building work (the applicant) or their agent and submitted to the Local Authority with plans and particulars in duplicate in accordance with the provisions of Building Regulations 14.
1. A block plan to a scale of not less than 1:1250 showing:
i) the size and position of the building, or the building as extended, and its relationship to adjoining boundaries,
ii) the boundaries of the curtilage of the building and the size position and use of every other building within that curtilage,
iii) the width and position of any street on or within the boundaries of the curtilage of the building or the building as extended,
iv) the provision to be made for the drainage of the building or extension.
2. Any other plans necessary to show that the work will comply with the regulations
3. Where it is proposed to erect the building or extension over a sewer or drain shown on the relative map of public sewers, the precautions to be taken in building over the sewer or drain.

A Full Plans Submission attracts fees payable by the person by whom or on whose behalf the work is to be carried out. Fees are payable in two stages and the first fee must accompany the deposit of the plans to cover their examination and subsequent issue of a decision notice. The appropriate charge is dependent upon the type of work proposed. The second fee is payable after the first site inspection of work in progress and covers all necessary site visits until satisfactory completion of the work.

Building Notice
Please note that the Building Notice procedure cannot be used for work in connection with a building to which the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 applies or where it is proposed to erect the building or extension over a sewer or drain shown on the relative map of public sewers. In these cases, a full plans application will be required.

In order to avoid unnecessary delays, we would ask that you supply the following information at the time of submitting your notice:

One copy only of the notice should be completed by the person who intends to carry out the building work (the applicant) or their agent and submitted to the Local Authority. Where the proposed work includes the erection of a new building or an extension, the notice must be accompanied with the following plans and particulars in accordance with the provisions of Building Regulations 13:
1. A block plan to a scale of not less than 1:1250 showing:
i) the size and position of the building, or the building as extended, and its relationship to adjoining boundaries,
ii) the boundaries of the curtilage of the building and the size position and use of every other building within that curtilage,
iii) the width and position of any street on or within the boundaries of the curtilage of the building or the building as extended,
iv) the provision to be made for the drainage of the building or extension.

No construction details are submitted with a Building Notice, consequently, we are unable to issue a formal approval notice or advise you of any changes required to meet the Building Regulations prior to the work commencing on site. You need to be aware that you will proceed with your development with less certainty as to its compliance than if the Full Plans route had been used and that the Local Authority may request at any time such plans in support of the Notice as are necessary for the discharge of their functions in relation to the Building Regulations.

A Building Notice attracts a fee payable by the person by whom or on whose behalf the work is being carried out. It is payable at the time of submission of the notice. The fee comprises a single payment which covers all necessary site visits until satisfactory completion of the work. The appropriate charge is dependant upon the type of work proposed.

These notes are for general guidance only. Particulars regarding the deposit of information are given in Regulation 13 of the Building Regulations 2010 (as amended).
