More about our fees (supplementary)

Is there a charge for making an application?

Supplementary information

A fee is payable and the amount will depend on the type of work you are intending to carry out, and these fees are outlined on our application forms.

A Full Plans application usually involves a 2-stage payment. The first charge is a Plan Fee, which must be paid at the time you submit your application, and the second charge is an inspection fee, which is payable after the first inspection of the site work has been carried out. Please note that there is NO additional fees required for the checking of any amended plans submitted to Acivico.

The fee for a Building Notice submission is usually the same as for a Full Plans application, but the total cost is payable at the time the application is submitted.

Please contact for further information about fees or refer to our application form.

Is there a charge for making adaptations?

There is an exemption for Disabled persons (medical proof will be required). In most cases fees are payable, however when the work is being carried out for the sole purpose of improving access for a disabled person, an applicant may claim exemption from the application fee.

The work that is generally involved would include a person with disability being provided with ground floor extension or conversion to provide a bedroom and or wet room or through lifts to a first floor. Any application submitted with a request for fee exemption should be supported by written details of:-

  • The name of the person who has the disability
  • The nature of their disability
  • A signed statement from a qualified professional (eg a GP) that the proposed work will be specifically for the benefit of the named individual

An application which is submitted without the above information and statement may not be accepted by Acivico Ltd until verification has been provided.
