Pre submission advice
Should you require initial pre submission advice, contact our administrative support team who may be able to answer your question or take details for one of our surveyors to respond directly.
Any advice can be given face to face, through a teams meeting, email or via telephone.
Submissions and assessment
We will review applications and provide a fee quote. Once the fee has been paid, we will assess the plans and request any appropriate additional information. Once we receive this we will consider the plans and issue an appropriate decision.
We will tell you about an inspection regime at the validation stage which will need to be followed.
We normally carry out inspections between 10.30am and 2.30pm.
Completions and Certifications
We will inspect the works. Once they are completed in accordance with the building regulations, we will issue a completion certificate, normally by email.
Once completed, the initial point of contact for all Building Control matters is the administrative support team.
