Pre-submission application:

If you are considering making a non-domestic application and need advice on a specific area of Building Regulations, we provide a free pre-submission application consultation. A pre-submission requires you to complete an application form which is available below or from our office.

If work has already been completed without the submission of a Full Plans or a Building Notice Application, this work is unauthorised, and a Regularisation Application is legally required.

When making an application please ensure that it is sent to the office that will be inspecting the work, refer to area details here.
