Unauthorised building work
Work which has not followed building regulations may be unauthorised.
You can report building work which you think has been done without approval by:
- phoning 01285 623537

Retrospective building control
Work that has been done without getting building regulations approval is unauthorised and can cause problems when you try and sell a property. You will need building regulations approval retrospectively by applying for a regularisation certificate.
It is only possible to apply for a regularisation certificate (PDF 3.9 MB) for work completed after 11 November 1985. Once we have received your application we may need to inspect the work before issuing a regularisation certificate.
