Once you have sent us your Building Regulation application and received our acknowledgement you are legally allowed to start work on site.

You or your builder must contact us to let us know of the commencement of works and to request an inspection. Further inspections of the work throughout the project are usually necessary, including at completion. See the Stages of Inspection page for more information. Please be aware it is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure these inspections are requested.
