Newcastle City Council Building Control Services – Coronavirus Update
(Last updated on 1 April 2021)
As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, additional safety measures will remain in place to best ensure the welling being of staff and customers.
If you are undertaking building work, you should continue to notify building control at appropriate stages for inspection in accordance with building regulation requirements.
Building Control will respond to site inspection requests with either a physical site visit or a remote / virtual inspection that avoids the need for the building control surveyor to visit the site/enter premises in person.
The type of inspection you receive will depend on the circumstances in each case at the time of request. The Building Control Surveyor will advise.
To notify us of work or to discuss a planned site inspection please contact directly the building control surveyor dealing with your case (mobile / email contact details can be found on previous correspondence) or alternately you can contact a member of the Building Control team on 07970 634 201 or 07976 594 890 to book your inspection.
