I have a brick utility building which has three external facing, single layer, brick walls. I want to plasterboard the inside for a clean finish. I haven't been in the property long but don't recall there being any bad signs of dampness over the winter.

I've been reading online the best way to do this and it seems highly opinionated. Here are some options I've gathered:

a) Apply a damp-proof 'paint/liquid' to the walls. Dot and dab insulated plasterboard directly.
b) Attach wood battens to walls with a damp proof membrane strip in-between wall and wood. Insulate gaps between battens. Cover all with a plastic vapor barrier. Attach plasterboard.
c) Cover all walls with a plastic vapor barrier. Attach wood battens. Insulate in-between battens. Attach plasterboard.

There are some other permutations out there but they appear to be the three most common I've come across.

Could someone shed some light on what is the best/correct approach?

Many thanks

All a lot of work IMHO. Did your researches give you "tanking slurry" as an alternative to plastic DPM? Also you haven't mentioned by far and away the most common method used in modern high rise and commercial construction, namely resillient bar mounted into clips, like this:

Certainly far faster than dot and dab or battening-out and may well not require tabking, depending on how awful the wall is. Remember everything you do needs to be plumbed-up vertically and straight side to side horizontally. You still need to do this with res. bar, but it;s far faster and easier
