Building Warrant Forms

There are different building warrant forms that you may need to complete at the different stages of your project. 

Submit online

You can submit all types of building standards applications online  through the national eBuilding Standards portal where electronic forms are available for submission. The portal will also allow the submission of any additional documentation required to process an existing application such as revised drawings or any certificate relating to completion, the required form for these is ‘additional supporting documents’.

Submit paper application

The data may also be made available to members of the public via the council website and the weekly list of Building Standards applications. In addition, as part of the building warrant process we may need to consult with other services within the council and share your data with other statutory bodies e.g. Scottish Fire and Rescue Service and Scottish Environment Protection Agency.
