Local Authority Building Control (LABC) is a statutory service that looks after the built environment. We make sure that any building works in Wiltshire are structurally sound, moisture resistant, adequately insulated, and comply with building regulations.
We do this by checking applications for compliance with building regulations and inspecting works on site, throughout the construction process.
We also investigate and, if necessary, make safe existing structures that are in a dangerous condition and which may affect public safety.
We also control demolitions, when notified, to ensure that the works carried out on site are not causing problems to neighbouring properties.
The main focus of the building control section of this website is on the domestic market and customers. We have broken the building control process down into easy to use guides and provided links to other useful sites that should help you to understand the process and how we can help you with your project.
