Building Control

Local councils, through their Building Control Service, have a statutory duty to apply the Building Regulations. These are a set of construction requirements and they include regulations on structural stability, fire safety, energy conservation, accessibility and standards on health.

The role of Building Control includes assessing your plans and inspecting work at various stages as it is being built.

Although Building Regulations are a regulatory function of Council, and enforcement forms part of our business, our job is to provide a courteous, equitable and efficient service valued by all of our customers.

Opening Hours
