To check if you need to apply for building regulations approval, please see our guide to what permissions or approvals are needed.
Slough Building Control offers two different types of application for building regulations approval:
Applications can be submitted to Slough Building Control either online or on a paper form - visit our application page here.
Once your application has been submitted, a member of the support team will check that all the correct documents have been provided, and register the application. It will then be allocated to one of the team of building control surveyors, who will begin the process of checking the plans and drawing up an inspection plan.
The inspection plan should normally arrive within 10 working days, but you can request an inspection 48 hours after you submit your application. Once work commences on site, remember to contact the team to arrange for the inspections outlined in your inspection plan. Once works on site are completed and all the relevant documentation has been checked, you will receive a completion certificate, showing your compliance with building regulations.
