Changes to building control inspections

On 1 July 2014, we changed our work practices to reduce travelling time and improve the efficiency of the service. We have moved to a next day inspection regime where inspections will need to be booked by 3.30pm the preceding day to be guaranteed an inspection.

Approximately 60% of our calls are booked the day before, so we hope this will not cause a significant change to your work practices. We will conduct the inspections between 8.30am and 1pm to allow sufficient time for you to concrete, backfill or cover over the same day.

How to book

To book inspections please call 01263 516345 or alternatively contact the Building Control Surveyor dealing with your application.

Please book your inspection by 3.30pm the day before it is required.
