Building Regulation charges

You are here

A charge is payable when you send a Building Regulations application to the Council. The amount of the charge payable depends on the work which is to be carried out.

Quotation for works

The charges we apply for Building Regulations applications are individually calculated and specifically tailored for each project. To request a quote please contact our Building Control team on or 01473 432951 . Please submit any plans, specifications and structural designs that you have to enable a full appraisal and cost estimate of the works being undertaken. A surveyor will then contact you via phone or email within 2 working days with your personalised quote. 

Payment of charges

Full Plans Procedure fees

In most cases when a Full Plans application is made, fees are paid in two stages. A plan charge is paid when the application is submitted. Once work had started you will be invoiced for the inspection charge. This inspection charge is a one off fee and will cover the remainder of the inspections, irrespective of the number of visits made.

Building Notice Procedure fees

The total of the plan charge and inspection is to be paid on application; there will be no further charges made unless the work changes from the submitted notice.

Regularisation application

The total fee is payable with the deposit of the application.
