Building Control

The primary function of Building Control is to process and determine applications and inspect building works in accordance with the requirements of the current Building and Development Control Law and Building Regulations. We aim to ensure that buildings are safe, healthy, accessible and sustainable for current and future generations.

If you are carrying out building work you may need to make an application for a licence under the Building Regulations.  Applications under the Building Regulations are separate to applications for planning permission. Advice on the what permissions may be necessary can be sought by contacting the Planning Department at the States Office (tel 01481 825531). 

You will need to pay a fee to make an application and the cost will vary depending on the type of work you are carrying out.  You can download an application form below.
