Building regulations approval
Apply to carry out minor building work
To carry out minor building work you will need to apply for approval (known as a building notice) at least two working days before you start.
Minor building work includes:
- simple structural alterations
- drainage alterations
- underpinning work
- installing a bathroom
- re-roofing work
- detached garages or outbuildings
- small simple extensions
You don't need to submit plans with your application but there is a fee to pay based on the work you want to do. Contact our Building Control team to find out how much this will be.
A building notice is valid for three years from the date you apply.
