Please see changes to our service
As we continue to respond to the on-going Government announcements to minimize the spread of the COVID-19 Corona Virus, we are partially lifting some of our inspection arrangements for works under construction.
In the first instance, please continue to notify us of each inspection stage by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or phoning us on 01626 215793. Your visit request will be triaged and a surveyor will advise if a site inspection will be undertaken or alternate measures requested. This may involve submitting a series of detailed photographs for assessment or undertaking a 'virtual' site inspection. When submitting photographs please also provide your phone number and your application reference number. The photos must include a panorama/overview of the site, external elevations, elements of construction and a brief description of what each photograph illustrates. Please note at this moment in time only the following site inspections will be undertaken: Excavation/Foundations, External Drainage, Oversite/DPC. Regrettably we are unable to undertake any internal site inspections. When surveyors visit site, please ensure social distancing measures are observed and ideally there should be nobody else present on site at the time of inspection. If you think you might have the virus or are self-isolating this must be disclosed and no inspection will be undertaken.
In the meantime we will continue to deal with full plans submissions as normal and are happy to assist with any pre-application or general technical enquiries.
Apologies for any short-term inconveniences the transitionary arrangements may cause.
