Full Plans application

Where Building Regulations apply to your work, you or your agent will need to submit a Full Plans application for approval or give a Building Notice.

A Full Plans application is used where detailed plans have been prepared. The plans will be thoroughly checked by us, for compliance with the Building Regulations. If we are satisfied that the plans comply, a notice of passing will be issued. Should further information or clarification be required we will contact you.

The plans need to show full constructional details of the proposed works. This requires a thorough working knowledge of the Building Regulations and construction in general. For this type of application you are advised to seek professional advice if you do not have this knowledge.

What we require

When submitting a Full Plans application the following should be included:

  • A completed Full Plans application form, along with the appropriate fee.┬áIn the case of a new building or an extension, a location/block plan to a scale of 1:1250 is required.
  • Two copies of the plans, (to a scale of not less than 1:100), which should include floor plans, elevations and sections of the existing and proposed works. Where the property is designated under the Fire Precautions Act an extra copy of the plans are required.
