Coronavirus update - site visits

During the current pandemic, site inspections are restricted but some inspections may still be possible subject to certain on site precautions being in place. Read the site precautions guidance for more information.

Tell us when building work is starting and arrange a site inspection

After your building regulations application has been approved, you'll need to tell us when your building work is starting - at least two working days before the work starts.

This is so we can arrange the first site inspection to ensure that the work meets building regulation standards.

The quickest way to do this is online.

Read our privacy notice which tells you how we use your data.

Give notice of commencement of building works

Or you can download, complete and return the paper application form.

There is no fee associated with giving notice.

Additional site inspections

Please contact us to arrange any further site inspections. You must give us at least 24 hours notice. Although we try to accommodate requests with shorter notice, this may not always be possible.
