Notification of forthcoming changes to the Building Control fees and charges from 1st February 2020

Building Control Fees and Charges are set to ensure the service can recover the costs of the service provision as required under The Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010.

 As from 1st February 2020 the East Devon DC Building Control Fees and Charges will be changing in accordance with The Building (Local Authority Charges) Regulations 2010. This will be the first time since 2011 that our fees and charges have increased and is necessary to ensure that we can continue to provide our best quality assured services to our customers. The hourly rate upon which the charges are based will rise to £55.40 (ex VAT).

 Due to customer demand for bespoke fee quotes and to provide more accuracy we will also no longer be publishing a standard fee table. We will instead provide a bespoke fee quotation as required to enable us to better meet the specific needs of each individual project.

 If you have a new project you would like a fee quote for or would like pre-application technical advice please call us on 01395 517482 or email us at buildingcontrol@eastdevon.gov.uk
