Building Control Registers

Building Control Historic Applications

On 25th May 2018 the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force which sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals. Due to these changes, most of the Building Regulation information over fifteen years old has been removed from our system and is no longer available. 

An online register of applications received from 31st October 1984 which are over fifteen years old is available with the following information only; 

  • Application number
  • Site address
  • Description of work
  • Plot number (if applicable)
  • Decision type
  • Decision date
  • Current status
  • File closed date 

Copies of building regulation approvals, completion certificates and any other information more than fifteen years old are no longer held by the Council and cannot be provided.

Competent Person Register

Competent Person Schemes (CPS) were introduced by the UK Government to allow individuals and enterprises to self-certify that their work complies with the Building Regulations as an alternative to submitting a building notice to the Local Authority or using an approved inspector.

A Competent Person must be registered with a scheme that has been approved by The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG). Schemes authorised by the DCLG are listed on its website at and any information relating to certain types of work will need to be sought from the competent scheme provider.
