Notes for table C :

  1. The reduction indicated applies to the charge for any work in categories 2-5 above which is carried out at the same time as chargeable works undertaken from table B. For example, if you intend to extend a dwelling ( on a full plans application) with an extension between 10-40m² and at the same time you install replacement windows to the existing dwelling, the total charge for the extension would be £475.00+, but the charge for the replacement windows will be reduced by 50% from £150 to £75.
  2. Work in connection with an extension (see table B) for which a fee is payable does not also require a fee. For example any structural alterations to form an opening into a new extension are included in the fee payable for the extension.
  3. Where works are to be undertaken with the estimated costs under £10,001, the total charge is payable on deposit of the plans.
  4. Works relating to new windows assume the installation of all windows to be undertaken during the same period, if multiple inspections are required an individual charge will apply or works based on an estimated cost.

Individually determined charges (contact Building Control)

  • Reversion of work from an approved inspector
  • Building work in relation to more than 1 building
  • Work consisting of domestic alterations (other than extensions) where the estimated cost exceeds £40k
  • Renovation of a thermal element affecting more than one dwelling or flat
  • Building work consisting of the installation of replacement windows exceeding 20 windows or in a building containing flats where more than one dwelling is involved.
  • The regularisation of any work which would normally be subject to an individual charge

Note : If you are carrying out multiple extensions and/or alterations on more than one dwelling there may be scope for the authority to reduce the standard charge.
Should your proposed building work be subject to an individual charge alternatively contact :
