The building standards system in Scotland is established by the Building (Scotland) Act 2003. The system is aimed to ensure that building work on both new and existing buildings results in buildings that meet reasonable standards.
The Building Standards team are part of Development Services and are located at Kilncraigs, Greenside Street, Alloa, Clackmannanshire, FK10 1EB.
If you want to build, alter, extend, change the use of, or demolish a building, it is likely that you will first have to obtain a Building Warrant from the Council in their role as a Local Authority verifier .
Our primary objective is to ensure that buildings are safe for their occupants and for the general public. This is mainly achieved through the Building (Scotland) Act and the control of construction in accordance with the Building Standards (Scotland) Regulations.
Examples of some of our tasks are shown below:
You can pay Building Warrant fees, Late Completion Certificate fees and most non statutory fees online via the Council's Online Payments web page or by ringing 01259 450000. Please ensure that you have your debit/credit card details and the relevant building warrant etc reference number to hand.
