Building control fees

General notes


The charges listed below are our standard charges. These charges are the same for both a “Full Plans” and a “Building Notice” Application. All charges are payable on deposit of submission.

If the charge for your building work is not listed as a standard charge it will be individually determined. Please contact us so that we can give you a quotation for your project.

Where electrical work is “notifiable” and is undertaken by an electrician who is not a member of a Part P
“competent person’s scheme” a charge of £450 (including VAT) will be made to recover the council’s costs in checking this element of the project.

Close

These charges have been set on the basis that the building work  does not consist of, or include, innovative  or high  risk construction  techniques and/or the  duration of the building work from commencement to completion  does not exceed 12 months.

The charges have also been set on the basis that the design and building work is undertaken by a person or company that is competent to carry out the relevant design and building work. If they are not the work may incur supplementary  charges.

Close

Some alterations  and  extensions  to existing  buildings to provide or improve facilities for  disabled persons are exempt from charges. For details and advice please contact us.
