Building Control Regulations and Commencement Notices

In accordance with the Building Control (Amendment) Regulations, 2014,  Commencement Notices and 7 Day Notices for construction work must now be submitted online.  A Commencement Notice is typically required for the construction or extension of a building or the material alteration of a building including dwelling houses. 

The online system may be accessed at https://www.localgov.ie/en/BCMS where first time users are required to create an account.  Fees may also be paid online.  If you are experiencing difficulties in using the system or submitting a Notice please contact Building Control at 021 4924332 or buildingcontrol@corkcity.ie   

Building Control Officers are also available to discuss specific regulatory requirements for your project in advance or assist with queries in relation to technical requirements of the Building Regulations.
