Submit a building application or request a site inspection

Use this service to:

  • submit a building notice
  • apply for full plans approval
  • apply for work that has been done without approval (regularisation)
  • request an inspection
  • view online history of building applications and inspections. 

Before you start

You will need to:

  • Log in or create an account on our building control portal to submit a building application. This is different from a Lewisham website account.
  • Click on ‘submit building application’ and follow the on screen instructions.


What happens next

  • We will send you an email confirmation with your reference number, after we receive your application.
  • You’ll be given the name and contact details of your site inspector while we process your application.
