Site Inspections

How to request a Site Inspection?

If you have a current application with our Building Control team then you can request a site visit using our site inspection booking form

Site inspections will not be carried out on building work which has been completed or occupied for more than 5 years.

When will my site inspection take place?

Site inspections will usually start from 11:00am on weekdays. 

You will need to submit an inspection request by 4:00pm the day before your site inspection is required. 

When does Building Control need to be notified of works?

Please inform Building Control when the following work starts and before work proceeds beyond the following stages: 

  • foundation excavations
  • oversite preparation
  • damp proof course
  • oversite concrete
  • drains prior to backfilling
  • roof structure/beams
  • drains test
  • completion/occupation
  • others as agreed

Completion Certificates

Following a satisfactory completion inspection a certificate will be issued. This is usually required by purchasers' solicitors when the property is subsequently sold. 

If you require a copy of an already issued completion certificate then please use our request form.

Please note that we only keep completion certificates for up to 15 years.
