Building Control Charges
Following our annual review on charges I would like to
announce that from the 1st January 2017 a new scheme of charges will apply to all
Building Control applications.
To reduce unwanted information and simplify the guidance, the
guidance sheet has been split into one for domestic works and one
for non domestic works.
