Apply for a building warrant

You can apply for a building warrant by completing and returning the application form.

Alternatively, you can now apply online through the home page.

In addition, you will need to submit three sets of plans along with the form. These plans should show the proposed building work and be clear and detailed. We advise that all plans are drawn by an architect or other suitably skilled person. For further information on the plans please see the publication Applying for a building warrant.

Along with the plans the appropriate fee should be paid. The fee is based on the estimated cost of the work. Please ensure we receive your payment within 5 working days of you submitting your building warrant application.

If you would prefer to talk over your building proposals with us before completing the application form, a pre-submission discussion service is available.
