How Much Does It Cost To Apply For Building Regulations Approval?


You will have to pay Charges to apply for Building Regulations Approval (unless you are entitled to an exemption). There is no difference in price between a Full Plans application and a Building Notice application. However with a Full Plans application, you pay in two stages:-

  • When you send us your plans (this is known as the plan charge).
  • When work starts on site (this is known as the inspection charge).

Most people prefer to make a full plans application. The building notice route is only suitable for straightforward, domestic building projects.
