Council’s Report & Consent must be obtained in relation to a design, which does not comply with Part 5 of the Building Regulations. Part 5 of the Building Regulations sets out the minimum siting requirements with respect to building setbacks, building heights, site coverage, impermeable surfaces, solar access, overshadowing, overlooking, fence heights, etc.
The application form for Report & Consent consists of two parts: Part A and Part B. Each application must be accompanied by the supporting documentation and an application fee - please refer to Part A application form for a complete list of all documents. It is strongly recommended that the proposal is assessed by the Relevant Building Surveyor prior to making an application for a Report & Consent to ensure that any non-compliance is accurately identified.
