The plans submitted will be formally checked and a decision given as to compliance with the regulations, you can amend the plans after the initial check to ensure that the plans meet the regulations.

The decision process takes a maximum of five to eight weeks and is dependent upon the information provided and if there should be any requests for additional information:

  • an application fee is required with the submission of the application; this is usually around 50% of the total cost of works
