Building Standards Customer Journey

If you would like to discuss your proposal or your specific needs, please contact us.  We are happy to arrange pre-application discussions to offer tailored advice relating to the type of application you wish to submit. 

If you disagree with an interpretation of the Building Standards that we have adopted in the consideration of a building warrant that you have submitted or will require to submit, you may request an interpretation through Local Authority Building Standards Scotland (LABSS). For details of the process and relevant application please use the following link: LABSS Dispute Resolution

Although the portal provides an electronic means for submitting building warrant applications, we do not have a facility to return approved plans electronically. To enable your application to be approved when the application process is finalised, we will ask that you submit two sets of paper drawings to allow us to issue your building warrant in the most efficient manner.

Please contact us if you have any questions.
