We have updated our Privacy Policy which details how we manage your data.

Following the annual review of our service costs, we would like to inform you that the Building Control fees will be increasing by approximately 5% with effect from 1st April 2018.  (Please note: that these increases do not apply to ESconsult).

We are, of course, pleased to continue to offer bespoke fee quotes for work that sits outside the scope of our standard charges.

The LABC has launched a suite of 250 Registered Construction Details (RCDs) to help you combat the problem of cold bridging in construction that will minimise heat loss through the weak junction points in a building’s outer envelope. 

We are focusing on providing our customers with excellent customer service. Our commitment is to make sure that your Building Control experience is stress free and undertaken in an efficient and reliable manner.

To help us to achieve this, we have now changed the notification period for booking site inspections. Instead of the “booking on the day” system, please contact us before 5pm on the day before you would like the inspection.

Our new telephone system is now live. This is part of our drive to continually improve the service that we provide to you.

For all enquiries please contact the Building Control Team on telephone number 01872 224792.

The 01209 614420 and 01208 265658 will no longer be in use. For a short period of time there will be an automated message providing you with the correct number and asking you to redial.

The 01872 224792 number contains a new Intelligent Voice Routing (IVR) telephone dialling system. This will have 5 options for you to choose from:

Option 1 – To book an inspection or report a dangerous structure
Option 2 – To make an application or to find out if you need to make an application
Option 3 – To make a payment
Option 4 – For all technical enquiries
Option 5 – For anything else

We are confident the new system will improve our service to you. It will ensure that your call is directed to the most appropriate officer to action your request.
