Building standards performance

Update on response times for applications and enquiries

Due to the significant volume of applications and enquiries we are receiving, it is currently taking longer than the published ten days to respond.

We are working through each enquiry and aim to respond as quickly as possible. However, you are likely to experience delays.

We appreciate your understanding and patience.
