Applications under building regulations
If you are carrying out building work you may need to make an application for a licence under the Building Regulations.
You will need to pay a fee to make an application and the cost will vary depending on the type of work you are carrying out.

Applications under the Building Regulations are separate to applications for planning permission. For information on making a planning application go to that section.
Some types of works do not require a full application for a licence under Building Regulations - you just need to send a notification to the Environment Department instead. These are known as 'exempt buildings and work' and are listed in Schedule 2 of the Building Regulations. You can find out more about Building Control exempt buildings and work and the notification process in the section 'Do I need Permission.'
