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).

Customer notice

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 the Building Control Service will not be carrying out physical site inspections until further notice.
Where a site visit is requested we will record the request and we are available to talk to you and receive photographic evidence which can be discussed. In this connection we would endeavour to ensure you can speak to a Building Control surveyor when requesting a site visit.

All online services will continue as usual and, until further notice, we can only accept on line applications and payments
