I've just received an enquiry regarding a building regulations application for an extension (which has been drawn by someone else) and I was asked whether he should submit a 'building notice' or 'full plans' building regulations application and straight away I replied 'full plans'.

This type of application confirms the specification at an early stage which allows the project to be built without unnecessary hassle or the building control inspector rejecting a material once installed. I would say that the vast majority of building control inspectors prefer the 'full plans' route as well.

I'm off to see the client tomorrow to help him out with the 'full plans' application, to compile the building notes and to arrange the structural engineer's details.

Please give me a call on 01395 266 666 if you have any queries regarding planning or building regulations.
