Request Building Control information 

Guidance notes for requesting information about Building Control.

  • the plans and documents sent to us for Building Regulation purposes are not public files and there is no obligation for us to display such plans. There is no automatic right for the public to view Building Control records
  • the plans and documents will only be displayed to the owner of the property, or their nominated agent, on written application and at the discretion of the Building Control Manager
  • it is not usually possible to provide copies of submitted plans. The copyright of all plans and documents belongs to the person who originally produced them
  • some older records are archived on monochrome microfilm. Because of this, they will not be to scale and may have lost clarity due to the microfilming process
  • it is not usually possible to offer a "same day" service for applications to view plans. The reason for this is that many records, especially estate developments, are extremely extensive and it can take a considerable time to search and locate the requested information. You will be notified in writing when the records are available to view
  • no guarantee can be given as to the accuracy of any particulars displayed
  • there may be a charge
  • you or your agent may be asked to produce ID, such as a drivers license or passport
  • this only relates to the viewing of submitted Building Regulation plans. If you wish to view plans submitted for other purposes, please contact us
  • we do not hold construction details for sites where the building control was supervised by a private inspector. In such instances you will be advised for the contact address of the approved inspector, whose details are held in the public register of Initial Notices
