Speak to an Inspector

Registered Building Inspectors are available to discuss your project or applications directly. They are usually available before 10 am or after 3 pm daily before or after their site visits. Please leave a voicemail if you are unable to get through to them.

The districts are split into eight areas, with a dedicated inspector serving each. If you are not sure which area you are based in download the Building Control Team Contact and Area information. Alternatively, you can view the inspector details below.
