Building regulations

Important notice regarding site inspection requests

Site inspection requests are currently being accepted and carried out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. When making a booking please ensure you select one of these days.

Whilst construction sites remain open and/or controlled DIY and self-build work continues, Building Control will continue to carry out Building Regulation checks. They will follow strict protocols: visits only where absolutely necessary such as drainage / excavation visits that cannot be done via photos / video calls and only where officers are happy to do so.

Applicants / builders should notify Building Control for any site inspection requests as normal.

A Building Control surveyor will either attend site as normal, or in some cases will contact the applicant / builder to discuss the works needing inspection and the most appropriate way of doing that, we may postpone if required.
