Not all building work is subject to the requirements of Building Regulations and certain buildings can be erected without the need of an application.
IMPORTANT: Although your building project may be exempt from the Building Regulations you will usually still need planning permission.
This must be applied for separately and advice can be obtained from Basildon Council Planning Department.
We advise that before proceeding with any building project you should notify both Building Control & Planning Services who will confirm that any planned work is exempt from Building Regulations and has the required Planning Permission.
REMEMBER: you will also need to contact PLANNING on 01268 533333 to check their requirements before building!
