Full plans application

You need to complete an application form and submit it with two copies of your plans (four copies if designated for the purpose of the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005), along with the appropriate fee.

Download a copy of the  Full plans application form (PDF 71.8 KB), then print it out, complete and return to us.

Your plans should be drawn to metric scale and show proposed floor plans, building cross-sections and elevations. A site location plan should show all new work in relation to existing building, nearby properties and the highway.

Additional technical information may also be required.

You can draw and submit your own plans, but because of the complexity of the regulations, it is generally advisable to use an architect or surveyor. You will receive a decision within a maximum of eight weeks.

Your application will be either approved, conditionally approved or rejected.

For further information on any of the above, contact our administration team.
