If you've started building work before notifying us, the work is unauthorised and could be unsafe. You need to regularise the work by telling us about it. You can do this online.
We'll check the work conforms to the building regulations and may ask for certain parts of the work to be opened up for inspection and show us as-built plans. We may also need the works to be altered to comply with building regulations.
Once we're satisfied the works are to 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 which started 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.
