When do I pay the fee?
An application fee is payable when you submit your application to us. In the case of a full plans application this is payable in two stages. The first part when you submit the application covers plan checking. You will be invoiced for the balance once we have carried out our first site inspection of the work. This covers all our site inspections and issue of a completion certificate. In the case of a building notice the fee is paid in full on submission of your application. There is no difference in the total fees payable for a full plans or building notice application.
Works for people with disabilities
If the works to be carried out are wholly for the use of a disabled person the application is exempt from charges. Please enclose a letter from a doctor or consultant confirming this when you submit your application.
