Building standards customer guidance

If you are making home improvements or starting building work, this guide from the Scottish Government will help to explain the building standards system.

It will give you information on what types of work need a building warrant, what information you will need to submit and will tell you about the process and how long it will take.

You can contact us if you would like to discuss your proposal or your specific needs. We are happy to arrange pre-application discussions to offer you tailored advice.

If you disagree with an interpretation of the Building Standards that we have adopted when considering your application, you can ask for an interpretation through Local Authority Building Standards Scotland (LABSS). For advice and guidance on this dispute resolution process please contact LABSS
