Much will depend on what building work you want done. If it does happen to fulfil building regulations, don’t automatically presume that this means you also have planning permission as building regulations and planning permission is not the same thing. You may need both.
To get definitive clarification of whether you need building regulations approval, you should speak to your Local Authority Building Control team. They can be located here.
In general, you will have to make a building regulations application for the following types of building work:
You can complete and submit a building regulations application via the Building Control Planning Portal. The cost of applying is dependent on what the work encompasses and who your local authority is in Kent.
It normally takes around five weeks to two months to discover if your building regulations application has been successful. When you get the thumbs up to go ahead with the work, you have three years to make a start on the project. If you don’t do anything in that three-year period, you will have to submit a further application.
