Our Building Control Service
If you talk to us about your designs at an early stage, you may avoid costly alterations later. Our surveyors have the technical expertise and local knowledge to help you to overcome any Building Control problems.
We can also help to co-ordinate your applications with other Local Authority services including
- Planning (Development Control)
- Cumbria Highways
- Main drainage
- Environmental Health
- The Fire Authority.
We provide the best possible Building Control Service for Architects, Builders and Developers and ensure that building work continues to satisfy National Building Regulations. As we handle about 1,400 Building Control submissions each year, we split the district into two sections, with one team dedicated to each area.
We are also responsible for:
- dealing with dangerous buildings and structures
- giving advice and permission for demolition works
- safety at sports grounds
- access for disabled persons
- Carlisle Shopmobility
- street naming and numbering.
