Building control site inspections and advice

Building Control site inspections

If you have deposited a valid application with us (such as Full Plans, Building Notice or Regularisation) you can arrange a site inspection with a Building Control Surveyor to check compliance. Please call 020 8359 4500 and select option 2. For same day inspections, you will need to ring before 10am and our lines are open from 9am. We aim to inspect sites between 11am and 5pm.

Building Control Surveyor advice

We provide a service that allows you to meet and discuss your proposals with a Building Control Surveyor.

The first hour’s consultation is free but there is a charge for each hour after that. Any charge would be off set against a subsequent application for that work.

If you wish to arrange an appointment please call 020 8359 4500.

Considerate Constructors

The Considerate Constructors Scheme is a not-for-profit organisation set up by the construction industry to improve its image and benefit the community.

Sites and companies that register with the Scheme are monitored against a five-point Code of Considerate Practice, designed to encourage performance beyond statutory requirements. Any work that could be construed by the general public as ‘construction’ can be registered with the Scheme.

The Code consists of the following five sections:

  • Enhancing the appearance
  • Respecting the community
  • Protecting the environment
  • Securing everyone’s safety
  • Caring for the workforce
