Building Control fees

Local Authority Building Control (LABC)This section outlines the fees which are payable for our building control services. The fees are derived from regulations laid down before Parliament and are administered by the council.

Before you submit your Building Regulations Application please download a copy of the Building Control Fees and Explanatory Notes and calculate the fee payable for your proposed work.

The charge for projects, not included in the building control standard fee tables, will be individually determined by the amount of plan checking and inspection time we require.
