Our Fast Assessment and Outreach services are temporarily suspended following Government advice on COVID-19. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and ask that you contact us should you need advice or to discuss an application. 

A building warrant does not exempt you from obtaining other types of consent, such as planning permission.

If the work is being carried out to a former North Lanarkshire Council property, you must contact your local housing office to advise them of all changes.
