Book an inspection by our building control team
As your building work progresses, you may need us to come out and inspect the work. It is easy to book an appointment with us.
We have many ways to book and inspection by our team:
Phone: 01900 702520 the day before, or before 10am on the day you wish to have the inspection. We encourage you to phone the day before to have a better chance to book the inspection on the day you desire.
Email: firstname.lastname@example.org and request an inspection by email as well.
Text us on 07860 017 719 and we will receive a text message with your inspection request.
Please ensure you include the full site address, what you wish us to inspect when you text or email in to us.
Please note that we unfortunately do not offer time appointments for our inspection. This allows our staff to visit every development site that has booked an inspection for that day and return to the office to complete the required paperwork.
Charges for inspections where more than 12 months have passed
Where completion inspections are requested more than 12 months after the last inspection there will be an additional charge. This charge can be viewed in the document Allerdale building control ancillary charges.
