Making an Application
Any building works, structural alterations or a change of use require a Building Control Application with Full Plans or a Building Notice.
If work has already been completed without the submission of a Full Plans or a Building Notice application, this work is called unauthorised work and a Regularisation application is legally required.
When making an application please ensure it is sent to the office that will be inspecting the work.
Please note: work to a Non-Domestic property cannot be made using the Building Notice Application route.
Building Control Launch On-line Building Notice and Regularisation Application Service
With more and more people going online for everyday tasks, Newry, Mourne and Down District Council’s Building Control Department has added online applications to their portfolio. This new service is very relevant during the COVID-19 pandemic, and in the future, to provide you with a faster and more accessible application process.
Customers can submit and pay electronically for their Building Notices and Regularisations online from 26 May 2020. With no requirement for detailed plans, the service provides customers with a fast and efficient alternative to the traditional methods of submitting applications.
By selecting either Building Notice or Regularisation Application via the Council Direct website link , customers can quickly register a secure account by providing an email address and password. Once registered, customers can begin submitting applications and payments online.
The Council Direct website is very easy to use and making an application offers a quick step-by-step process ending with a secure payment screen, accepting debit or credit card transactions.
The system also has the ability to handle applications for multiple properties and the built-in fee calculator helps people work out the correct payment each time.
Once a customer makes an application, it is entered directly onto the Building Control Management Information System. Applications can be validated within 48 hours and you can arrange for an inspection as soon as possible.
With the introduction of any new online service we would ask customers to be patient when submitting applications.
