New eBuildingStandards.scot Building Application Submission Service
Scottish building warrant applications can now be submitted to all 32 Scottish local authorities using the new eBuildingStandards.scot website. This new website will also be the home of ePlanning.scot – formerly ePlanningScotland), which was launched in April 2009 and now sees over 70% of all Scottish planning applications and appeals submitted online.
The average predicted financial savings per building warrant application
Businesses and the public can now submit building warrant applications to their local authority online using the eBuildingStandards.scot website where they can complete the online form, upload supporting documents like drawings, calculate the correct fee and make payment electronically to the local authority. eBuildingStandards.scot also allows users to submit other building standards forms and documents that are required to be submitted after a building warrant has been granted.
- The electronic submission to local authorities of applications for building warrants and other related forms, such as completion certificates or electrical installation condition report
- Electronic payment of associated fees directly to the local authority
- Submission of digital copies of supportin documents, eliminating the need to print and post.
Applying for amendment of building warrants, notifying the local authority that work has started and submitting the completion certificate once the work has been completed can all be carried out through the eBuildingStandards.scot portal.
Certificates of design and construction can also be uploaded, with validation process having been significantly improved. Local authorities no longer have to check the Scottish government’s certification register to verify that the certifier (or approved body) is a member of the relevant certification scheme when the certificate of design or construction was signed because the eBuildingStandards.scot portal automatically checks the details of the approved certifier or electrical contractor.
The new eBuildingStandards.scot website also gives access to three accredited location plan providers, where applicants can purchase and upload a location plan in support of their building warrant application.
The eBuildingStandards.scot website allows business, local communities and members of the public to access the same high level of service, delivering customer service improvements and predicted financial savings of around £289 per building warrant application.
