On site approval

The Building Control Service will make statutory and routine inspections as the work progresses to ensure compliance with the building regulations and other allied legislation.

If you are carrying out building work you are required, under the Building Regulations, to give the local authority notice of when the work has reached a particular stage. The local authority will explain about the notification procedures which the regulations require you to follow at various stages of the work - find out more

Site inspections

Where a Local Authority building control service is being used, the Building Regulations require that notice is given to the Local Authority of commencement and completion of the work and at certain other stages.

Enforcement appeals

If a local authority believes that your building work contravenes the Building Regulations, they may serve you with an enforcement notice - which you can appeal against.
