What is building control?

We are here to help you build in compliance with the Building Regulations.

We offer a pre-application service for your building regulations approval and we'd be delighted to help you with any enquiries regarding building work that you intend to undertake on your premises.

Please do not hesitate to contact our duty officer on 020 8753 3387 (9.30am to 12.30pm) or by e-mailing buildingcontrol@lbhf.gov.uk

Our role is to ensure that buildings in the borough are properly designed and constructed for the health, safety and welfare of people using them, and that they are accessible and energy-efficient.

We also provide a public protection service to residents where buildings become dangerous.

What we offer

Quality - Our qualified and experienced building control surveyors offer quality-assured, professional and impartial advice to residents and developers about adhering to building regulations.

A ‘one-stop shop’ - We have well-established links with the council’s planning, licensing and highways services, as well as a close working relationship with the London Fire Brigade, so we can provide you with everything you need for your application.

Direct contact - All our surveyors can be contacted directly via telephone, e-mail and mobile.

Proper certification - We will issue a completion certificate to you on satisfactory completion of the project which you will need when you come to sell your property in the future.
