Building Control

We are responsible for ensuring that notifiable building work carried out within the Borough complies with national Building Regulation standards.

To find out what building work must be notified to a local authority or carried out by a registered installer, visit Building work, replacements and repairs to your home (GOV.UK).

COVID-19 and Building Control Inspections

The Local Authority is committed to working with you to achieve compliant buildings and we are doing our best to deliver a quality service with minimal disruption to yourselves. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic in relation to the Building Control Service, certain criteria will need to be met for a physical site inspection to be carried out. Read the full guidance.
