Before you build, extend or convert you or your agent must advise us either by submitting full plans or a building notice application.

Payment must accompany your application made by debit card by telephoning 01708 432700.

The building regulation charges are the same for corresponding building work for a:

  • Full Plans Application
  • Building Notice

All charges are shown with VAT at 20 per cent. Only a charge for a Regularisation Certificate is exempt VAT however it is subject to a 20 per cent uplift therefore the total fee is equivalent to all other building control charges for corresponding building work.
