A new national building control application service from the Planning Portal
I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that the Portal will shortly be launching a national building control application service. Well, we’ve set a date: from 10 October you’ll be able to submit building control applications at https://buildingcontrol.planningportal.co.uk
Our existing customers have been asking us for many years to provide a building control service to sit alongside planning. We’re delighted that we’re finally able to do it and the great news for you is that it will also be free of charge to use, just like the planning service.
Even better, we’ve kept it simple to keep the whole process as easy for customers as possible. The service includes full plans, building notice and regularisation forms as well as the option to attach supporting documents and calculate fees, if required.
We’ve engaged local authorities and approved inspectors in the process and will continue to do so to develop the service further in the future.
If you are a local authority or approved inspector and you haven’t yet signed up to receive applications via the service, please contact your Portal Account Manager asap to make sure that you don’t miss out.
And if you can’t wait until Monday, you can watch the walk-through below:
