Book an inspection

Coronavirus → Changes to building control

For site work and visits to occupied domestic properties, we have implemented the following measures to keep our staff and customers safe:

  • We cannot inspect a property if anyone in the house is currently self-isolating or shielding
  • Properties will need to be ventilated before we arrive on site, you can do this by opening the windows for 1 hour before the site visit
  • All occupants and contractors will need to follow social distancing guidelines and maintain a 2 metre distance from our officers
  • Inspecting officers will wear PPE when required
  • We will not accept photographic evidence of works carried out in lieu of a site visit.

See further details on changes to building control.

To book an inspection please contact the building control team on 01942 489144.

You will need to contact the office by 4.30pm to arrange an inspection for the following day.

I've already started work

If you need a site inspection but this is the first time you have told us about the work, you will have to apply for building regulations approval first.
