Building work inspections

To book an inspection, please telephone 01909 533184

We have a statutory duty to ensure that the Building Regulations are enforced within Bassetlaw.

Where a Building Regulations application has been deposited with the Council, anyone undertaking building work has a duty to notify us at various stages of work, appropriate to the project.  Stages may be inspected together where the relevant elements are visible.

In calculating the period of days, “days” means any period of 24 hours commencing at midnight and excludes any Saturday, Sunday or Bank Holiday.

You must let us know the date your builder plans to start work; please give at least two days’ notice.
