Building Control

Planning and building control


Updates on our service due to Coronavirus
We intend to provide a site inspection service during the current crisis. However, in order to minimise the risk of transmitting/catching the virus we will be taking sensible precautions when on site and where possible only doing 'outdoor' inspections. We will continue to inspect excavations, drains and structural elements.

Please call us on 01799 510453 or 01799 510538 to request visits.

We will not be doing completion inspections inside occupied dwellings until the situation changes (unless critical for conveyancing).
