These notes are for general guidance only. Full particulars of a “Regularisation” are contained in Regulation 18 of the Building Regulations 2010 (as amended) and in respect of fees, in the Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010.
The Applicant is the person on whose behalf the work is being carried out, for example the buildings owner.
One copy only of this application form should be completed and submitted with:
A Regularisation application must be accompanied by the appropriate fee, which is charged at the rate of the normal fee payable (had the works not otherwise already been carried out) plus 40% (VAT is not payable).
The appropriate fee is dependant on the type of work carried out. Fees, scales and methods of calculations are set out in the Building regulation fees web page.
The Council may require an applicant to take such reasonable steps, including laying open unauthorised work for inspection, making tests and taking samples as the Council think appropriate to ascertain what work, if any, is required to secure compliance with the relevant regulations.
Persons who have carried out the building work or have made a material change of use of a building are reminded that permission may also have been required under the Town and Country Planning Act.
Further information and advice can be obtained from the Building Control Section. A “Regularisation Certificate” may only be issued once the Council are satisfied that all the relevant Regulations have been complied with.
Preston City Council will use your information for processing your building regulation application in a manner compatible with the Data Protection Act. Any disclosures or sharing of information will only take place where required or permitted by law. For further information please see our fair processing notice.
