Application Forms

The General Data Protection Regulations require us to revise the notification we provide to our customers on our application forms as to how and for what reason we intend to use your data. To allow for this, we have temporarily removed the BCNI application forms until a suitable wording is agreed and implemented across Local Authority Building Control. If you require a Building Control Application form, please contact your local Councils Building Control Office. Contact details can be found by clicking here. It is anticipated that revised BCNI application forms will be available in the near future. We apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
