Plan checking for building regulations
Plans or drawings for proposed schemes are submitted to the council. We check them for compliance with the building regulations before work is started.
This is done to make sure any alterations or amendments can be made before the building work is started on site. This can save time and money for the developer.
For domestic work and new housing we need two sets of the plans. For commercial schemes we need four copies of the plans, as we need to consult with the Fire Service for these types of buildings.
You will need to have plans drawn by a suitably qualified person such as an architect or designer. It is also useful to ask someone who has recently had work done to recommend a builder.
For large schemes we offer pre-application checks and meetings to assist with the process. These help save time and money for both customers and the council. If you are interested in this service or for advice on any of the above, please contact David Lloyd or Steve Blackmore.
