Temporary changes to Building Control services

In light of the Government's announcement on 23 March, we are limiting inspections for all but essential or emergency matters with immediate effect, until further notice.

We take our responsibility to protect our colleagues and customers seriously. As such this means that Building Control team members will not be permitted to attend sites unless absolutely necessary. The Civic Centre is closed to all but essential staff.

We are mindful however, that critical inspections will be required and for attending Dangerous structures. These will be dealt with along with our partners in emergency services and with measures that include social distancing.

We would ask, that if you are unsure if we need to visit, that you contact us via this email address: Alternatively, using the usual officer contact phone numbers you have, or are available via our web pages.

We will make every endeavour to return your call and will advise regarding work and methods of showing how you are progressing and complying with Building Regulations. We must ensure that we do this in a safe and compliant manner to prevent unnecessary spread of infection. 

All enquiries for information should be sent to

These are unprecedented events and we anticipate that many of our customers will contact us at this time, so we ask that you please bear with us. 

Whilst we appreciate that you may have some difficulty with some of the measures we have had to put in place, the safety and welfare of all UK citizens must now take priority.

Thank you for your understanding.
