Do you need a building warrant?
You will probably need a building warrant if you are considering:
- or demolishing a building
A building warrant is entirely separate from planning permission. Sometimes both a building warrant and planning permission are needed.
Contact us if you are unsure whether you require a building warrant.
Starting work without a building warrant is an offence and could lead to a fine of up to £5000. If you have inadvertently started work before applying, you must declare this on the application form and cease building work until the warrant is approved.
