Since changes in 2010 legislation, local authorities are able to set building control fees on a site specific basis tailored to the project. Other than the fees outlined below a site specific fee quotation can be obtained very quickly by contacting us using email or telephone as below.

If you are emailing in please provide a brief description of the works.
