Site Inspections During Covid 19 Outbreak

Stratford District Building Control has now commenced a reduced service and with regret will not be carrying out site inspections until further notice.

We will be happy to accept photographs or videos of work that we would normally inspect. It is crucial that these are sent in to provide evidence of the work undertaken as we will be reliant on this to be in a position to ultimately issue you your Completion Certificate.

To submit your photographs or videos please email with a subject "Inspection" followed by the site address or Building Regulation reference number.

Attach your photographs fully demonstrating critical elements of the work. Showing tape measurements of foundations, joists etc.

Surveyors will assess your photos and seek to advise you the same day that the photographs are acceptable or if additional information is required.

Other enquiries will be dealt with the available resources but there may a delay in responding.

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.
