If you've started building work before notifying us the work is unauthorised and could be unsafe. You can apply to regularise the work by completing this online form.
We'll check the work conforms to the building regulations, however we may ask for certain parts of the work to be opened up for inspection and ask for as-built plans. We may also require alterations to be carried out so the works comply with building regulations.
Once we're satisfied the works are of an acceptable standard we'll issue a regularisation certificate. This certificate proves the work is safe and complies with the building regulations.
Regularisation only applies to work that commenced on or after 11 November 1985. Acceptance of an application and the requirements under 13A is without prejudice to the powers of this Authority under Section 36 of the Building Act 1984.
The fee payable is determined by referring to the fee tables below which include fees for regularisations.
