Site Inspections During Covid 19

Stratford On Avon District Council Building Control are currently continuing a reduced service.

For us to establish the correct level of service to provide you with it is imperative that you contact our office at least 48 Hours prior to the required inspection.

Therefore please call 01789 260626 or email buildingcontrol@stratford-dc.gov.uk. When contacting us please provide the site address or Building Regulation reference number and all the relevant information needed to assess further.

Site inspections will be assessed on a risk basis and in some cases (internal works) we may be happy to accept photographs, videos or carry out virtual inspection of work that we would normally physically inspect.

It is crucial that sufficient evidence of the work undertaken is provided as we will be reliant on this to be in a position to ultimately issue you your Completion Certificate and any attached photographs should fully demonstrate critical elements of the work. Showing tape measurements of foundations, joists etc.

Surveyors will assess your photos/ videos and seek to advise you the same day that this evidence is acceptable or if additional information is required.

Other enquiries will be dealt with when the resources are available but there may a delay in responding. If you are unable to email in your enquiry please contact 01789 260626 were your enquiry will be dealt with or put through to a duty surveyor.

In advance can we thank you for your patience when emailing and/or phoning the office.

What are the Building Regulations?

Building Regulations are national standards for England and Wales that apply to most types of buildings, whether in the home or a commercial development. They ensure that the environment in which we all live is a safe and healthy place.

They also ensure that adequate access and facilities are provided for people with disabilities and include requirements for conservation of fuel and power.
