Guidance Notes for Building Control Fees and Charges
The following provide guidance on charges for Building Regulation applications in Ribble Valley. They are not, however, intended as a substitute for the Ribble Valley Borough Council Scheme of Charges.
This is the most common type of application and involves the submission of detailed plans for approval. A plan charge is payable on deposit of the application and an inspection charge is payable after work has commenced and the first inspection has been made.
This type of application does not involve the submission of detailed plans for approval. It is suitable for domestic applications but cannot be used where the building is a workplace. The Building Notice charge must be paid on deposit of the application with the council.
Exemption for disabled work
Where work is to provide access or facilities in an existing dwelling solely for a disabled person no charge is payable.
The fee for work that has already been carried out will be assessed on an individual basis.
Total Estimated Cost
This means a reasonable estimate of what would be charged by a professional builder to carry out the work (excluding professional fees and VAT).
Where plans show more than one type of work (i.e. different charge categories) the charge payable is aggregated accordingly.
For certain larger projects the charges may be paid by instalments.
