Site Inspection Services During Covid-19

In response to the Government’s latest announcement we are currently undertaking very few physical onsite inspections, to support this, we are also providing a virtual inspection service. We appreciate the patience and understanding you have shown us during these difficult times. We are doing all we can to provide the best possible service and support both quickly and safely.

Please continue to book site inspections as usual by email or phone with your reference number and details of the support you require, we will work to determine the most appropriate inspection service.

In light of the current COVID-19 situation Building Control will only be accepting correspondence via e-mail for the foreseeable future.  This includes fee queries, applications, plans, additional information etc.  All payments will need to made via BACS or card payment at the current time.

Changes to the Building Regulations

The Building Regulations are subject to review and change by the Government.  We will publish details of any new / amended regulations in our technical advice section.
