Restrictions on Copying
The plans were deposited with Norwich City Council for building control purposes. Most were drawn by architects or by other private companies or individuals who retained the copyright. Changes to copyright legislation in 2014 mean that the Record Office can supply copies of building control plans for non-commercial, private use and study. Copies for commercial use cannot be supplied without the consent of the copyright owner. Commercial use includes use in a new planning or building control application.
Copyright in 'artistic works' (including plans and architectural drawings) expires 70 years after the end of the calendar year of the author's death, the author normally being the person who drew the plans, unless he or she was working as an employee of a company, or under a contract which specified otherwise. Evidence would be needed that the architect or other originator had died (or ceased to exist) more than 70 years ago or a letter of permission produced from the originator or his or her successors.
