Application Fees

Our fees are highly competitive as we are a not-for-profit business and only charge for the time our surveyors spend on your project.

For ease, we have a standard fee table covering minor domestic works.  For all other projects please contact us; preferably with a planning reference, drawing, or sketches and we will be happy to provide an individual fee assessment.

Payment can be made using the following methods.

  • Invoice payment – Your Building Control Application invoice is usually sent within 7 days of registering your application/notice.  On the reverse are instructions on how to pay your invoice.  Methods include: cheque, BACS, telephone payment.
  • BACS – Bank Transfer.  If you would like to use this method please contact the office on 01843 577522 before submitting your application.

Standard Fee Table

  • The design and building work is undertaken by a person or company that is competent to carry out the relevant design and building work referred to in the standard fee tables.

If the above criteria are not met, the work may incur a supplementary fee.
