We are currently streamlining our processes, which means when we collect your rent via Direct Debit it will have a new account reference. This does not change the way in which we collect Direct Debits. If you pay between 16th – 22nd of the month your October payment will be taken later than planned.

Building Regulation charges

You are here

A charge is payable when you send a Building Regulation application to the Council.

The amount of the charge payable depends on the work which is to be carried out. The total fee is the same for the Full Plans or Building Notice procedure. In certain cases, where the work consists solely of providing facilities for a person with disabilities, no fees are payable.

The schedule of charges for Building Regulation applications is available to download below:

To request a paper copy of the schedule of charges, for any queries on our fees or to pay by phone please contact the team.

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 plans are first deposited for checking and then an invoice for the inspection charge is sent after the work has commenced. 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

With a Building Notice application the total fee is payable on deposit of the plans.
