What will the cost be?

We set our charges locally within a framework set by Government.  We aim for our charges to be fair and set them at a level to cover our costs only. 

Please download our guidance sheet on our charges found below.  Payment can be made either as part of our online service or a card payment can be taken over the phone, alternatively a cheque can be sent made payable to STG Building Control.

Fees 2022

The fees are not subject to annual increase, but are revised periodically.  There will be a small fee increase from 1 June 2022.

 

Any other fees

Please note that we may charge additional hourly rate fees for repeated site inspections.  Currently the fee is £63.00 + VAT (£75.60 including VAT) per hour or part thereof.

Any applications that have become inactive for a period of 1 year or more, there will be an administration charge to reactivate the file.  The current fee is £50.00.  This information is provided on the paper application forms, notified when submitting an online application and again in the Terms and Conditions which are sent out when an application is processed.  The Terms and Conditions are also available from our website.

Electronic communication by default

We recommend sending all communications by email where possible.  Any applicant / agent submitting their application online or by email is, by virtue of the Building (Electronic Communications) Order 2008, agreeing to be communicated with electronically.

All communications can therefore be sent by email throughout the building control process including issuing the decision unless notified otherwise.  This will help to reduce processing costs and staff resources by not communication via post.
