Building Control - request a site inspection

Choose one of the following options

Important notice regarding site inspection requests

Site inspection requests are currently being accepted and carried out on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. When making a booking please ensure you select on of these days.

Whilst construction sites remain open and/or controlled DIY and self-build work continues, Building Control will continue to carry out Building Regulation checks. They will follow strict protocols: visits only where absolutely necessary such as drainage / excavation visits that cannot be done via photos / video calls and only where officers are happy to do so.

Applicants / builders should notify Building Control for any site inspection requests as normal.

A Building Control surveyor will either attend site as normal, or in some cases will contact the applicant / builder to discuss the works needing inspection and the most appropriate way of doing that, we may postpone if required.

Please note the following information

  • Inspection requests must be submitted the day before the inspection is required.
  • The surveyors cover a large geographical area and unfortunately we cannot say whether you will be the first or last visit of the day. Please say in your request if you have materials such as concrete ordered for a specific time so that we can plan our route accordingly.
  • The surveyor is not allowed on site unaccompanied.
