Building control

Building control charges

Since 1 April 1999 Building control charges are set by each local authority. For general building work and loft conversions the charge is based on the cost of that work. For work such as extensions there is a set charge.

The online application form calculates the charges for your application based on the information you supply on the form.

Please note that the quoted charges are for guidance only. The actual charge will be individually assessed for each project as required by recent changes to legislation.

When making your application you can pay the quoted charge and we will advise you of any variation as soon as possible.  The charge may increase or decrease based on the outcome of the assessment.


We may also make additional charges if extra inspections or other work are required.
