Covid-19 Restrictions

Due to the national lockdown restrictions in place in England, site inspections will be limited to external works only until further notice.  Building Control will still be operational and contactable. Social distancing measures will be required for any inspections carried out and we ask that if you request a site inspection and we are willing to undertake that visit, please remain at a safe proximity from the works we are to inspect and refrain from approaching the Building Control Officer whilst on site.

The Officer will contact you when back in their vehicle to approve or offer advice

We apologise for the inconvenience and any queries should be addressed to the Building Control Manager, Stuart Kerr, Tel : 01287 612364  Email​

Alteration and installations

 We need to inspect your work at least 2 working days before you cover up any elements or fittings and within five working days of all work finishing.


Substantial building work

You, or your builder, must tell us:

  • At commencement of work
  • At excavation for foundations
  • Prior to covering any reinforcing steel in foundations
  • Prior to covering up any hardcore or damp proof membrane
  • Prior to covering drains
  • Prior to plastering or encasing walls, beams, columns or ceilings
  • Prior to occupation (if prior to completion)

We may also make additional inspections where we feel these are necessary.
