Depending on the size of the project, if you are submitting Full Plans, in most cases the fees are lower. This is because we can work systematically from the plans, and don’t need to be on site as much. If you are not submitting full plans to us, you will need a Building Notice instead. These are generally more expensive, because we cannot work from the plans and require more visits on site.
Please contact us to arrange an individual fee assessment, if the fees listed do not cover your project or if you are planning a larger project. Discounts are available for detailed plans and repetitive designs.
If you have made an application or have received an invoice from us please go to this page to make a payment. Select either ‘Building Control’ or ‘Invoice’ from the menu and remember to include any reference numbers you’ve had from us.
All prices include VAT at 20%.

Large or complex projects submitted as Full Plans have the benefit of a full plan assessment and are dealt with at a lower cost than Building Notices.
Please submit the Plan Assessment or Building Notice fee with the application. Where applicable, we will invoice the inspection fee after commencement of work.
Fees are based on Building Control Charging Scheme and include VAT at 20%. Please make cheques payable to ‘Lichfield District Council’. We also accept debit and card payments.
