About the Building Control Service

The council is responsible for thousands of building control applications and building inspections every year.  In Building Control we assess plans to make sure they comply with regulations.  As work progresses on site we inspect it at key stages.  It is not the function of Building Control to act as a mediation service between applicant and builder; neither is it to provide a site supervision service, nor to provide a warranty for construction work; these services may be obtained from architects, building surveyors, clerks of works and various warranty schemes.  Building Control service can help designers, builders and the public comply with Northern Ireland Building Regulations.

Building Control staff also provide other services, such as the control of dangerous buildings and structures, property searches, postal numbering and providing technical advice.
