What type of application would you like to submit?

Full Plans Application
This type of application is required for all non domestic or commercial work. If you are carrying out work to a domestic property, you can either submit a Full Plans or Building Notice application, depending on which is more suitable for you; please read on to see more information to help identify which type of application would be the best option.
Building Notice Application
This is a less detailed form of application where minimal information is initially required and no formal decision is given. It can mean there is no delay while detailed plans are produced and there is no cost involved in the preparation of detailed plans.
Regularisation Application - for works completed or started only
Regularisation Applications can be made where work was carried out after 11 November 1985 without plans being deposited or a Building Notice given. The local authority can ask for parts of the work to be opened up for inspection, or require further work to be done. It may not always be possible to establish compliance with Building Regulations, but where it is possible a Regularisation Certificate will be issued.
Full Plans Reversion Application
This type of application is used for non-residential applications registered previously under an Approved Inspector which they are no longer able to service. The local authority can ask for parts of the work to be opened up for inspection, or require further work to be done.
Building Notice Reversion Application
This type of application is used for residential applications registered previously under an Approved Inspector which they are no longer able to service. The local authority can ask for parts of the work to be opened up for inspection, or require further work to be done.
