A Building Notice is simply a notice to the Council of your intention to carry out building work.
It is a simple form giving basic details of the project. If the work involves the erection of a building or extension, the Notice should be accompanied by a block plan of a scale not less than 1:1250.
The Building Notice procedure cannot be used if the work is to a building designated under the Regulatory Reform (Fire safety) Order, i.e. any building other than a simple dwelling.
If, during the inspection programme, certain aspects of the construction are in doubt, details and plans will be requested for examination.
As with the Full Plans submission, you may commence work after two days from the date of deposit.
You should be absolutely sure you are going to proceed with your project prior to submitting a Building Notice, as there is no mechanism to issue a full refund once your Building Notice submission has been made.
