Building Control

Local Councils, through their Building Control Service, have a statutory duty to enforce 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 during the build. 

Although Building Regulations are a regulatory function of Council and enforcement forms part of our business, our role is to provide a courteous, equitable and efficient service valued by all our customers. In so doing we take pride in providing the highest possible level of service to all our customers.

Applicants or agents who have a query regarding the current status of an application should contact the office as follows:
