Building notice application

Building notices are generally suitable for smaller domestic projects where the owner or the builder are confident that they can meet building control requirements without approved construction drawings or specifications. We do not approve any drawings submitted, so it’s important you consider which application route best suits your project. If the proposal relates to any other work, such as commercial, industrial or retail, a full plans submission must be made.

You don’t normally submit plans with a building notice, but sometimes we will ask for plans and details of the proposal if compliance with building regulations can't be confirmed without them.

Applications will expire if the work does not commence within 3 years from the date of submission, so it's important that we are notified when works commence and at each inspection stage.

Area the building or premises is located:

If your area isn't listed, you may be a resident of West Northamptonshire.
