The benefits of the 'Full Plans' procedure are:
We will advise you on the Building Regulations at the design stage of your project, which means your plans are more likely to be passed by the Local Authority.
We will ensure that you have a decision usually within 3 weeks - passed or conditionally approved.
You may save yourself the costly delays that can occur if you work is not up to standard. See the information about 'FULL PLANS'.
The benefits of the 'Building Notice' procedures are:
Where the building proposals are for minor work the Building Notice procedure is simpler than the full plans procedure.
If your proposed work is not too extensive or complex it is a good idea to use a building notice, but your builder (or you) must know what he is doing as rectification of work can be expensive.
There are no limits to its use except as mentioned above where the building contains a shop or an office.
