Building notice application
This type of application does not involve the passing or rejection of plans. It is intended to enable certain small works, such as bathroom installations, minor structural alterations, drainage works and underpinning to get under way quickly.
If the work is uncomplicated and you are happy that you or your builder has a reasonably good understanding of the regulations, then you can use a building notice form.
You may start work 48 hours after your notice has been received and validated by the local authority. Your notice will only be validated once the fee has been paid.
New dwellings - change to regulations
Since 26 December 2022, it has been a requirement of the Building Regulations to submit details of the infrastructure and connectivity for electronic communications for all new dwellings. We will not be able to accept any Building Control applications without an attached connectivity plan.
Please view the Approved Document R Volume 1: Physical infrastructure and network connection for new dwellings pdf for more information on the requirements and a model connectivity plan.
