There are four types of application you can make: two for proposed work, one for unauthorised work and one for reversion work. For work that hasn’t started, there is either a Full plans application or a building notice.
In all cases:
- you may start work and request inspections, once your application has been submitted
- when completed to the satisfaction of the building regulations you will receive a completion certificate confirming the works comply with the building regulations
For work that has already started or is completed without an application having been made, please see Regularisation Applications.
