Building Control 

We carry out inspections to make sure that building works meet the Building Regulations.

Nearly all building works and changes of use require Building Regulations approval. These regulations set out the minimum standards of safety to safeguard the interests of the intended occupiers of buildings, future purchasers and the community as a whole.

We make regular inspections during construction to make sure that construction work is carried out in line with the regulations. Follow the links below for more information.
