Building Control Register
The Building Control regulations are made under powers provided in the Building Act 1984. They apply to the majority of building projects. Their ultimate aim is to ensure the health, safety and welfare of people in and around buildings. They also provide standards for energy conservation and access and facilities for disabled people.
Anyone wishing to carry out work which is covered by the Building Regulations must ensure it complies with the regulations and submit a valid application or initial notice prior to commencing the work.
The Building Control Section holds the public registers for Initial Notices received from approved inspectors for both commercial and domestic works.
This information is available for inspection on the Approved Inspectors Register. View location on MOLE
The information held on the building control register of applications is NOT a publicly viewable register. Therefore, all enquiries relating to whether Building Regulation applications exist on a property are only obtainable through a tailored report request or information request submitted to the council.
