Planning and building control


Due to the Covid-19 pandemic our Building Control Service is reducing the number of site inspections on small domestic projects until further notice and has put alternative arrangements in place as follows.

Where there is an urgent need for an inspection please continue to book online email:

We will assess your request on a case by case basis, but we will probably provide a ‘virtual site inspection’ by accepting photographs and short video clips if practicable from the builder, contactor or homeowner.

Where you can, please give us advance notice so we can positively assist and advise you.

On larger developments we still intend for an officer to visit the site where it is safe to do so particularly at the early stages of development.

All online services are continuing as usual. 

If you have any urgent query regarding your building control application please email us.

Please note: Site bookings can only be booked after an application has been made.
