Apply for regularisation

If you have already completed works without our approval you will need to apply for retrospective building control approval through a process called regularisation.

After you apply for regularisation our staff will inspect the work. This may mean exposing parts of the construction. If the work is found to be deficient in any way, you will be required to carry out remedial work to make it comply with current regulations.

You need to pay a fee to us when you submit your regularisation application. View our building control fees.

Apply for regularisation

We will receive your online application the day after you submit it. Please submit any electronic format drawings by email. Please do not attach them to your online application.

You can also download the full plans submission form at the end of this page, complete it and send it to us. Please contact us if you would like help completing the form.
