Building Control


Our Building Control service is withdrawing its site inspection service in line with our Building Control Northern Ireland partner councils until further notice.

Following the recent escalation of the coronavirus response, this decision is also in line with the latest guidance from the Public Health Agency in respect of public safety and welfare.

Building Control shall continue to respond to any Dangerous Structure requests.

Anyone wishing to book an inspection is advised to do so by email at so that Building Control can keep a record of requests for future reference. These requests shall demonstrate the measures taken in difficult circumstances to attempt to gain compliance.

Builders/applicants are advised to take date stamped photos or videos for future reference before covering up the works.

Please telephone 028 9244 7300 to report any Dangerous Structure.

The aim of the Building Control Service is to deliver a customer orientated quality service to architects, designers, developers, builders, solicitors and the general public, and as such ensure a safer and healthier built environment for all.

As well as enforcing the application of The Building Regulations, the Building Control Service has a responsibility for Street Naming, Dangerous Buildings legislation, Energy Performance of Buildings Legislation, assisting with the processing of Property Certificates, and the provision of other technical advice to the Council.
