As part of our commitment to meeting customer's expectations, we aim, in most cases, to provide you with a full response, or issue the Building Warrant, as applicable, within 20 working days from receipt of your valid application. In some complex cases, applications for a building warrant will result in a "customer agreement" between you and the Building Standards Team where the performance outcomes including the target first response period will be specifically agreed.
Other than those applications covered by a customer agreement, if you have not received a full response, or a Building Warrant, as applicable, within 35 working days from receipt of your valid application you have the right to request resolution to the matter. This may be done, in the first instance, by contacting the Building Standards Team Leader using the Council contact information below or by emailing the Scottish Government Building Standards Division at: firstname.lastname@example.org
