How to book an inspection

Service update: Until further notice, we are not conducting regular site visits. If you require urgent assistance, please phone 01483 743 841.

In some circumstances, we are accepting photographic and video footage to enable inspections to continue and works to progress. It is important to note that without suitable and sufficient compliance evidence, we may not be able to issue a completion certificate at the end of the works.

These changes are in response to the Government's Coronavirus (COVID-19) social distancing and essential services only requirements. In line with national policy, we have adjusted our normal working practices and service delivery until further notice. The majority of our services remain operational and we are prioritising vulnerable residents.
