Building Control and COVID-19

Temporary arrangements for site inspections from Building Control, during coronavirus.

As a result of the government’s announcement of measures to minimise the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, we've had to review our inspection arrangements for works under construction.

What you need to do

You will have received your project-specific inspection regime, which indicates the inspection stages that you should notify us of during construction.

Please ensure that you notify us at commencement and when all other inspection stages have been reached.

How to notify us

Email to notify us of each inspection stage. Please include a phone number in the email, so that we can make contact with you about the visit.

You will be asked whether anyone at the site has been advised to self-isolate, or has recently returned from overseas travel to an affected area. We will decide on a case-by-case basis whether a site inspection is essential and we will contact you if we are unable to attend.

Any questions?

Please call us on 0300 300 8635 if you need a further copy of this or more information.

These temporary arrangements will remain in place until the government advises us that normal business arrangements can resume.
