Building Permit and Decision Notice

Upon collating all required documents and having assessed the application as compliant, we can issue you a decision notice.

Carefully read through the decision notice as it specifies all of the relevant certificates to be provided at different stages of the build, conditions and the inspections to be completed by either the engineer or PCG.
