Full Plans Application

 

These plans are used during your build to ensure that your extension satisfies all of Building Control’s requirements.

 

KADS uses the planning drawings as a basis to create a detailed set of ‘full plans’ which are pre-approved by either your local council’s building control officers, or an independently appointed building control consultancy.

 

In the case of work being carried out under a full plans application, your local control council’s building officers, or an independently appointed building control consultancy, will inspect the progress of your build at various stages of the development to ensure that it complies with national and local standards.

 

These inspections take place at pre-defined stages of the construction, for example, when footings are excavated, to ensure that they are deep enough (taking into account local geography, such as proximity of trees), when insulation is laid prior to a solid floor being laid, etc.

 

Building control inspections can be carried out by independent building control specialists, though in most cases, it is probably best to use the local authority, since they are the ultimate body responsible for enforcement of the regulations.

 

Building Notice

 

Some people, in order to save time with their building project, prefer to build their extension or property on a building notice, as this procedure does not involve passing or rejecting of plans.

 

It also avoids the preparation of detailed ‘full plans’, and is designed to enable some types of building work to get under way quickly, making it particularly attractive to people doing smaller scale developments, such as home extensions.

 

As in the case of a full plans application, your local control council’s building officers, or an independently appointed building control consultancy, will inspect the progress of your build at various stages of the development to ensure that it complies with national and local standards.

 

These inspections take place at pre-defined stages of the construction, for example, when footings are excavated, to ensure that they are deep enough (taking into account local geography, such as proximity of trees), when insulation is laid prior to a solid floor being laid, etc.

 

Building control inspections can be carried out by independent building control specialists, though in most cases, it is probably best to use the local authority, since they are the ultimate body responsible for enforcement of the regulations.

 

On this page you will find examples of the documentation produced. KADS prides itself on the clarity and level of details provided whether it be on the plan or the specification.

Agents Service

 

The ‘Agents Service’ is applicable for both Planning and Building regulations applications. The service includes completion and submission of all forms and plans via the planning portal and acting as your planning agent, removing the stress of dealing with the local authority direct.
