Building Control

    Cannock Chase Council and Stafford Borough Council operate a shared service for the Building Control function. This has resulted in a single team, based in a single location carrying out the building control function across the two Local Authority areas.

    Our professional team of Building Control Surveyors assess plans and carry out site inspections to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations 2010. The team also act as consultants on various construction matters and as well as the Building Regulations, our Surveyors also:

    • control demolition of buildings and structures
    • take action on dangerous structures and buildings (including 24-hour callout)

    What is Building Control?

    All building work has to meet current codes and regulations. Our Building Control service ensures developments meet the minimum standards relating to health, safety and welfare of people in and around buildings. 

    Visit our About Building Control page for more information. 

    Completion Certificates 

    We issue Completion Certificates to certify that the Council is satisfied that the building work complies with the relevant requirements of the Building Regulations.
