Planning and Building Control

Check if you need planning permission before starting any work or if you project falls under permitted development.

Make a building regulations application and book a site inspection.

If you suspect that work is being carried out without permission you can report a planning breach to us.

We use Building Control to make sure that all buildings are safe, easily accessed and energy efficient.
