Building site inspections

Customer update on coronavirus

Temporary arrangements

Due to the current social distancing requirements, we are not undertaking physical site inspections of construction work.

If you are continuing to work on site and have reached one of the inspection stages listed below, you should continue to notify us for an inspection. We will assess compliance through other means. This may include video conferencing, photographs or other evidence.

Please use our form below as normal and we will call you back to discuss how we can best assess your project. Alternatively, please call 01344 354100.

It is important that you still notify us of your inspection request so that we can record it and make an appropriate assessment. Failure to notify us may lead to legal action.

If you are requested to send photographs, please send them to

Our mailbox is limited to 30Mb so you may need to send multiple emails. Sending photographic evidence does not imply approval and you should seek approval from your building control surveyor after submitting the photographs.

Final or completion inspections

During the current social distancing period, we are not carrying out final or completion inspections. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

If your work is now complete, please contact us for a completion visit when the government removes the current restrictions.
