Building Control

**Changes to Building Control Services during the coronavirus crisis**

Submission of Building Regulation Applications

We are accepting building regulation applications electronically by email and the existing online portals. Please do not send postal applications or you may have a significant delay.

We are unable to receive cheque payment. On submission of your application, you will be contacted either by email or telephone of how to pay.

Building Control Site Inspections

Due to the latest government guidance and COVID restrictions, completion inspections are likely to be postponed until 3rd December at the earliest. When asking us to carry out internal inspections, please ensure the property is empty with no occupants, including builders or ensure that residents are in a separate part of the building and the area we are inspecting has the windows open. Please speak to one of our Surveyors to discuss if you will have difficulties with any of these restrictions.

Dangerous Structures and Demolitions

Dangerous structures should be reported in the usual way. We are maintaining the same level of service.

We will process demolitions but we will not carry out a physical site inspection unless we deem it essential for safety reasons.
