This form will usually be acceptable for submissions to any Local Authority in England and Wales.
1. Submission Options: You may choose to use either the ‘Full Plans’ or ‘Building Notice’ option. However, the ‘Building Notice’ option cannot be used where:
(a) The building is or contains a ‘workplace’ under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 which includes offices, shops, factories, hotels and dwellings (flats) containing common areas.
(b) The building work is over or near a public sewer.
Regularisation Submission: This should be used where building work has commenced or has been completed.
Full Plan Applications: Two copies of detailed plans including full constructional specification and a site plan. A further two copies of layout plans will be required to work to, or in relation to, buildings subject to the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 to enable consultation with the fire authority.
Building Notice and Regularisation: In the case of an extension a site plan must be provided. Additional written information may also be requested.
