How do I submit a building application?

What is the best way of submitting a Building Regulations application?

Basement conversions can encounter a multitude of problems, which could mean that the conversion fails to satisfy the minimum standards set out in Building Regulations and that it does not satisfy its purpose. For this reason, this Borough advises that applications for basements conversions are submitted under the “full plans” procedure.

Where the basement is to be used as a workplace, a full plans application is required.

When a full plans application is deposited, a Building Control Surveyor formally checks the drawings and details submitted. Any deficiencies and potential problems should be resolved before the application is approved. Drawings must accurately represent the existing building, its construction, internal layout, the proposed works and layout.
