Building control

Please be aware that you may experience some problems using the planning, licensing and building control search and comment facility. We are working to resolve these issues as soon as possible. If you do experience any issues with the system please email us on planning@lbhf.gov.uk.

Please accept our apologies for any difficulties you experience.

  • The surveyors are on call 24 hours a day, 365 days a year to respond to reports of dangerous buildings and structures.
  • All surveyors can be contacted directly via telephone, email and mobile and can offer same-day site inspection service.
  • We can offer pre-application advice, should you wish to discuss your proposal before submitting a formal application.
  • We have well-established links with the council’s planning, licensing and highways sections, as well as the London Fire Brigade, providing you with a ‘one-stop shop’ for your application.
