Arrangements for site inspections and notifications:
Following a relaxation in the CV-19 working practises in England there are currently no restrictions with the inspection activity of North Worcestershire Building Control. Building surveyors are however now working from remote locations rather than the office.
We are aware that a risk from CV-19 still exists and all surveyors are being asked to use common sense when attending site.
You will have received your project specific inspection regime, which indicates the inspection stages that you should notify us of during construction. Please ensure that you notify us at commencement and when all other inspection stages have been reached. Whilst we accept that on rare occasions there is a place for the submission of photos instead of physical inspections, in line with Government guidance we do not consider photos should be used on a regular widespread basis.
Surveyors direct contact mobile numbers are available on our contact us page as well as the paperwork issued to you as part of your application process.
Please be aware that our surveyors and office based support staff are very busy at present. Whilst requests for site visits received via phone before 10:00am will be attended to the same day, we can not guarantee to action any other requests or return any phone messages left the same day. Please accept our apologies.
Please do not rely on text messages or whatsapp for site inspection requests or matters of a similar importance. Such messages can not be diverted during staff absence and would be missed.
