Changes to site inspections

For the foreseeable future, due to staff shortages, in person site inspections will only be carried out for the following stages of your building work.

  1. Commencement/excavations  
  2. Roof/steelwork
  3. Completion

All other stages of work undertaken will require comprehensive photos or video to be submitted showing compliance with the Building Regulations.

A Completion Certificate will only be issued once a review of all documentation has been carried out, relevant gas and electrical certificates submitted and a satisfactory final site inspection has been made.

Proposed new fees

Please note from 1 January 2024 we will no longer invoice for any application, all application fees must be paid in full at the time of application submission.

Building Regulations

Within England most construction work is covered by the Building Regulations. These are technical standards set by the government and all but the most minor building work carried out must conform to these standards. The Building Control service is responsible for ensuring the compliance with the building regulations by giving feedback on plans and providing site inspections.

Building Regulations are designed to ensure the health, safety, welfare and convenience of people in and around buildings, the conservation of fuel power and water and the accessibility to and facilities within buildings.
