What are the Building Regulations options?

There are four different Building Regulations options - Full Plans, Building Notice, Regularisation and Reversion

Full Plans

This option is suitable for all types of proposed work. It involves you submitting two copies of plans and information in sufficient detail to show that the construction will comply with the Building Regulations.

More information on Full Plans

Building Notice

This option notifies us that you intend to carry out work.

If the work involves the erection or extension of a building, plans of the site, location of the proposal and details of any drainage work are required on submission.

More information on Building Notice


This option allows the owner of a building to apply for retrospective Building Regulation approval for illegal building work. It cannot be used for any work that was carried out before 11 November 1985.

More information on Regularisation


This option is available, to the owner of a building, following the withdrawal of an Approved Inspector. The procedure is similar to the Regularisation option.
