Craigavon Borough Council Building Control has launched its new Online Applications service giving customers the opportunity to submit and pay for Building Notices and Regularisations electronically.

The service is the first of its kind to be offered by a Building Control department in Northern Ireland and provides users with a fast, efficient alternative to the traditional method of submitting applications where detailed plans are not required.

By going to the Craigavon website and clicking on Online Building Control Applications customers can quickly register for a secure account, receive a password by email and instantly begin submitting applications and payments online.

The user friendly nature of the website ensures that making an application online is quick and easy with a few simple screens guiding you through the application process to a secure payment screen accepting debit or credit card transactions.

Once a customer has made an application, it will be entered directly to the building control database and a tracking system will be used to keep them informed of the status of each application submitted.  Users will be informed of status changes by email and can log on to the website at any stage to see how the application is progressing.
