        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, but 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.

        Make a payment

        All Building Control fees will be payable by invoice after receipt of the application form with details on how to pay.  We will not be accepting payment before an invoice has been raised after this date.

        Standard Fee Table

        These standard fees have been set on the basis that:

        • The building work does not consist of, or include, innovative or high risk construction techniques and/or the duration of the building work from commencement to completion does not exceed 12 months.
        • 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.

        VAT at the rate of 20% is included except within the Regularisation fees.
