Local authorities differ in their requirements regarding the format in which building plans must be submitted. Most require only paper copies, while some may still require a more permanent or plastic copy. The amount of copies needed also differ amongst authorities. inhouseplans.com therefore only provides paper copies, (as many as required by the owner), and each customer should ascertain from its local authority what format is required. One set of plans provided on order by inhouseplans.com will be colour coded plus one black and white set as required by the National Building Regulations - ready to be submitted to your local authority.
Customers should also note that most local authorities have a plan scrutiny fee payable. These scrutiny fee structures vary amongst the different authorities, but are usually based on the floor area of the building and/or on the number of sanitary fittings in the building.
