What you will need

Please note that Building Control Service only undertakes a site inspection once a valid application has been submitted for the proposed work and the relevant application fee has been paid. We also remind you that it can take up to two working days for your application to be registered, so we strongly advise you to submit your Building Regulation Application well in advance of start of work on site. Any building work carried out without the benefit of a formal Approval Notice is at your own risk.
