If you do not check plans on Building Notice applications, why are the charges the same as for Full Plans Applications?

Printer-friendly versionPDF version

As no plan check is made, additional reliance is placed on the inspection stage of the process to ensure the Building Regulations are complied with.

This translates into a requirement for either more inspections being necessary, or the inspections made taking longer than would be the case with a Full Plans application; hence the total cost is the same.
