Building Standards Performance

Building Standards have moved nationally to an electronic system of applying for a Building Warrant on 24th August – some delays in processing have occurred during the changeover however, across Aberdeenshire, as an average, the target of having 90% of applications processed within 20 days has been achieved.

The average time taken to grant a building warrant has increased due to the introduction of a 9 month refusal procedure which is being undertaken retrospectively.
