A building notice can only be used for domestic work and is only advisable for smaller works such as underpinning, internal alterations or reroofing and does not require the submission of plans with the notice. If you do choose this method for larger works such as a conversion or extension a location plan will be required at a scale of no less than 1:1250.
The exception to this would be if your project is within 3m of a public sewer. Unless you already have a “Build Over Agreement” you will need to submit a Full Plans Application.
We may require further details to be submitted before or during the construction process, i.e. calculations to ensure compliance, but we will make you aware of this as early as possible.
Once a notice has been received and providing all details are correct, a building notice acknowledgement will be issued. Works can then start on site within 48 hours. You should be confident that your builder is competent to work without a set of plans annotated to show compliance with the building regulations and has a good understanding of current legislation.
