Building control charges

Request an individually assessed charge

There are two reasons why you might want to request an individually assessed charge:

  1. the work you are doing falls within our standard charging criteria, but because there are many elements to the work you feel that the total fee is unfairly high. If this is the case, you should fill in the online form 'Request an individually assessed charge (where standard charges apply)'
  2. you are planning a large-scale project that does not fall within our standard charging criteria. If this is the case, you should fill in the online form 'Request an individually assessed charge (where no standard charges apply)'  

How we decide the charge and notify you

When we decide the charge, we take into account some or all of the factors listed in paragraph (5) of Regulation 7(8) of The Building (Local Authority) Charges Regulations 2010. We will then give you written notice of the amount of the individually assessed charge and the factors we took into account in deciding the charge.
