With immediate effect building control can only accept applications submitted electronically.

Important information

To submit a building notice application you can complete it online using the Planning Portal or alternatively you can submit your building notice application form via our website. 


This type of application does not involve the passing or rejection of plans and is intended to enable certain small works, such as bathroom installations, minor structural alterations, drainage works and underpinning to get under way quickly.


This method places responsibility on the person carrying out the work that they have a knowledge of the regulations.

If you have any doubt please contact the building control team.

Please remember to notify us when you commence works.
