Notes:
1. This request for Regularisation should be, so far as is reasonably practical, accompanied by:-
a) a plan of the unauthorised work, (if it is necessary to submit STRUCTURAL CALCULATIONS PLEASE SUBMIT AN
ADDITIONAL SET OF PLANS AND CALCULATION SHEETS).
b) A plan showing any additional work required to be carried out to secure that the unauthorised work complies with
the requirements relating to the building work in the Building Regulations which were applicable to that work when it
was carried out.
2. The Local Authority may require the applicant to take such reasonable steps, including laying open the unauthorised work for
inspection by the Authority, making tests and taking samples, as the Authority think appropriate to ascertain what work, if any, is
required to secure that the relevant requirements are met. It is therefore assumed a reasonable level of co-operation between applicant
and Local Authority.
3. Fee required in respect of application. The Regularisation fee due for any work shall be 130% of the Building Notice fee which
would be payable for that work. The Regularisation fee is payable at the time of the application to the Local Authority in accordance
with Regulation 8(1)(e) of The Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010.
NOTE a Regularisation fee is NOT subject to VAT.
If you have any difficulties in assessing the Regularisation fee due

THE BUILDING REGULATIONS (AMENDMENT) REGULATION 1994
Extract from (Department of the Environment) Circular 16/94
Unauthorised Building Work
The purpose of Regulation 18(2) is to enable home owners and others to submit applications for Regularisation Certificates to the
local authority to regularise the position. Typical circumstances may be where a builder or previous owner had not sought the
relevant building approval; or where, through an oversight, the current owner has failed to do so. Both parties need to be agreed
that the work is controllable under the Building Regulations in the first instance.
It is not intended that this new power should replace or detract from the enforcement powers already available to local authorities
where, for example, an offence is perhaps more consciously created.
It is important to note that an owner is under no obligation to make an application under Regulation 18(2) and that the local
authority is under no obligation to accept it. Application for a Regularisation Certificate will, in most cases, relate to the
completed work. However, in order to be able to assess whether compliance with the Regulations has been achieved, the local
authority is empowered in Regulation 18(3) to require the applicant to open up work, where necessary, and the applicant must be
willing to comply with all such reasonable requests. Use of the power, therefore, assumes a reasonable level of co-operation
between applicant and local authority, with the applicant generally initiating the action on this basis.
Regulation 18(2) sets out the information required to support such an application; it is based on what is practical in the specific
circumstances applying to any one case. The application can be made by the owner, with or without the services of a
professional agent.
Regulation 18(3) places the responsibility on the applicant to carry out the actions specified, where requested by the local
authority. If an applicant is unwilling to comply with a reasonable request he runs the risk that the local authority will be unable to
judge whether the work satisfies the applicable Regulations.
The local authority may conclude that the work satisfies the requirements of the Building Regulations or that no work is necessary
to make the work comply (in either case, taking account of any dispensation or relaxation granted by them). In such a case, the
authority may give a Regularisation Certificate. The Regulations do not provide specifically for a dispensation or relaxation but
they acknowledge that one can be made. However, there is no provision for appeal to the Secretary of State in a case where the
local authority do not agree to relax or dispense with a requirement of the Building Regulations.
The local authority may, on the other hand, notify the applicant that specified work will need to be carried out so that the work
complies with the Building Regulations. When that work has been carried out, a Regularisation Certificate may be given.
The third possibility is that the local authority may find that they cannot determine (or cannot determine without unreasonable cost
or disruption to the owner) what work would enable work to comply with the Building Regulations. In such circumstances the
Regularisation fee is not refundable as the authority will have incurred costs in considering the application.
Regulation 18(5) empowers the local authority to issue a Regularisation Certificate. It is issued on the basis set out in Regulation
18(6).

Guidance Notes on Charges for
Building Control Services
The Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010
Local Authority Building Control for
Wealden, Eastbourne, Rother and Hastings
st
Explanatory Notes
Effective from 1 November
2018
The Building Regulations charges are divided into Plan and Inspection Charges (Full Plans
Submission), Building Notice Charges, Regularisation Charges and supplementary charges
(further guidance is given below). They are different for each type of work.
The following tables are for guidance and are not a substitute for the Building (Local Authority
Charges) Regulations 2010 which are the only statutory expression of the law.
Note: charges can now be STANDARD (attached) or INDIVIDUALLY CALCULATED.
HM Customs and Excise have determined that VAT is payable on charges for work where the
Local Authority is not the only authorised provider of building control services.
Therefore, VAT is payable on all works except Regularisation Charges.
1. A. Full Plans - the plans charge must be paid on the deposit of the plans with the Council.
Card payments to be made by calling 01892 602005
B. Inspection Charge - these will be payable after the first inspection has been undertaken.
The inspection cha
rge (if applicable) will be invoiced to the applicant, unless notification is
received in writing to issue the charge to another relevant party.
2.
Building Notices - the charge must be paid when the notice is submitted to the Council.
Card payments to be made by calling 01892 602005.
3.
Regularisation Charge - the charge is equivalent to 125% of the Building Notice charge or the
combined Plan and Inspection Charges excluding VAT. The charge must be paid when the
application is submitted to the Council. Card payments to be made by calling 01892 602005
.
4. Advice Charg
e - these may be payable for pre-submission advice and any charge levied will
be disc
ount
ed from any subsequent full plans charge (note the first hour is free).
5. Re-Submission Charge - a charge may be payable on the deposit of a re-submitted
application.
6. Ex
emption - works solely to provide access and/or facilities for disabled people to existing
dwellings and buildings to which the public have access are exempt from charges. In these
regulations 'disabled person' means a person who is within any of the descriptions of persons
to whom Section 29(1) of the National Assistance Act 1948 as extended applies.
7. Total Estimated Cost - this means a reasonable estimate that would be charged by a
professional builder, but excluding professional charges and VAT.
8. Individually Determined Charges - where the scope of the work is not covered by the
attache
d tables please contact Building Control for a quotation.
9. Instalments - in certain cases the inspection charges may be paid by instalments; contact
Building Control for information.
10. Completion of Work - charges are based on work(s) being completed within 18 months of
commencement of the work. If completion is more than 18 months from commencement there
may be an additi
onal ch
arge for inspections undertaken beyond that time.
11. Standard Charges - are based on the principles that the building work does not consist of, or
include, in
novative or high risk construction techniques (details available from the authority).
Standard charges have also been set on the basis that the design and building work is
undertaken by a person or company that is competent to carry out the relevant design and
building work. If they are not, the work may incur supplementary charges.
East Sussex Building Control, providing building control services on behalf of:
050219
12. Electrical Works - where a suitable electrical certificate under BS7671 cannot be provided
by a competent person there may be an additional charge.
13. Structural Calculations
- where structural calculations are not prepared by a competent
person relative to the scheme submitted there may be an additional charge.
14. Complaints - any formal complaint about the implementation of the scheme will be dealt with
under our corporate complaints procedure.
NB. Where multiple extensions are proposed, an aggregate of the area of the extensions may be
used to fall into a single category.
Individual determination of charges
An individual assessment of our charges will be necessary for larger and/or more complex
schemes.
This includes:-
Work consisting of the erection or conversion of a dwelling where the floor area exceeds
250
Work consisting of two or more dwellings where there is a repeat of house type designs - this
may attract a reduction in our standard charge
Where there is no standard charge shown in our tables of charges
If your building work requires an individual assessment of a charge (or standard charges cannot be
applied to the proposed work), you should contact Building Control at
building.contro
l@wealden.gov.uk providing details of the proposed work/development together
with a request for the Building Regulations charge. We will aim to contact you within 2 working
days. If you wish to call us please telephone 01892 602005.
