Building regulation fees
The fees are divided into plan and inspection fees, building notice fees and regularisation fees. The fees will depend on the work that is being done.
Depending on the type of application being made you will either pay when you apply or will be invoiced later. Please check the following to make sure you are able to pay at the right time:
- full plans - the plan fee must be paid when the full plans application is made.
- building notices - the fee must be paid when the building notice application is made.
- inspection fees - these will be invoiced after the first inspection has been done.
- disabled adaptations - there is no charge for works in a building to give access and facilities for disabled people.
