Application forms and fees
You can download and fill in the appropriate application form from the list below for the work you're undertaking. Please either post it to the address on the form or scan and email us.
You can also use Planning Portal or Submit-a-Plan to send your full plans, building notice or regularisation applications electronically. If you’re not registered you’ll need to do this first to set up an account which should only take a few minutes before you can get started.
Full plans and building notices
You can use our full plans application form for all types of building work and we'd recommend that you use it for more complex work, for example a housebuilding project. If it's a commercial development you must use our full plans application. This is a more detailed application and minimises the risk of work not being compliant with regulations.
You can use our building notice application form for smaller projects such as extensions, garages and internal alterations.
Replacement doors and windows
You'll need to download the replacement window application and the supplementary information and return them both to us.
- Window/door replacement application form
- Replacement window, supplementary information
- Window style sheet
You'll need to use the electrical safety application form if you're intending to carry out electrical work in a domestic property and you're not a registered electrical installer.
To regularise unauthorised works
Use our regularisation application form for works carried out after 11 November 1985, or contact us regarding works before this date.
Fees and charges
There's a fee for most applications; see our building regulation fees and charges from 4 April 2022.
You can pay for your application online. Please select ‘building control fees’ in the ‘payment type' field and make sure to input your application number (if known) or the site address in the 'application number or site address' field.
