We have developed a range of guidelines to help you understand building standards and make the right decisions before you start your project. You can download our guidance from the further information section.

Application fast tracking

Sometimes building warrants and completion certificates need to be processed as a priority application. These are dealt with more quickly than normal applications. Our building standards management team will consider fast tracking where the applicant/agent provides a letter requesting the application to be fast tracked and suitable justification is given that the application meets the following criteria:

  • the application is for the benefit of a disabled person
  • the application is for minor works and the works are linked to a house sale
  • the application relates to a project with social or economic benefit to the community
  • other special circumstances are identified
  • the application relates to a Scottish Type Approval System (STAS)
