Full Plans Procedure
The most widely known procedure is by the deposit of 'full plans' whereby the person wishing to carry out the work, or their agent, submits plans showing full details of the work.
These plans are then checked for compliance with the Building Regulations and, if satisfactory, an approval is issued.
Advantages of the Full Plans System
You will receive a formal decision after the checking process has taken place. An approval notice can be presented to financial institutions, solicitors, surveyors etc... when seeking loans or moving home. You have the assurance that providing the work is carried out in accordance with the approved plans the Regulations will be satisfied.
