Please supply as much information in the form as possible, ideally the information should be on plans that you can include in the form. Information that will help us to calculate your charge includes:

  • Type of work - for example: a new building, an extension, alterations etc
  • A description of the work and/or size of the building or extension - for example floor area and numbers of floors
  • Any special features or methods of construction
  • Any parts of the work that a competent person scheme installer might be responsible for

We welcome early involvement, particularly on larger projects, prior to the formal deposit of a Building Regulations application to provide maximum assistance to achieve rapid approval of your scheme.
