Building control applications

Building Notice application

A building notice is appropriate for small, simple building works such as the installation of a bathroom, the underpinning of foundations and internal structural alterations to dwellings.

The building notice should give details of the location and use of the property and describe the proposed works.

If a building is to be erected or extended the building notice should be accompanied by a plan showing the size and position of the building and its relationship to adjoining boundaries. In some instances you may be asked to provide certain plans or information, such as structural calculations. There is no requirement for the local authority to approve or reject a building notice.

The protection from having a set of approved plans to work from is not available with a building notice. Compliance with the Regulations is ensured primarily by site inspections. You or your builder will need to make sure that work on site is inspected frequently.

You may begin work at any time after you have given a building notice, provided that you give the local authority two clear working days notice. A building notice will cease to have effect if the work has not started within three years.
