Despite the council offices being closed to the public for the time being, EDDC Building Control Services remain open for business and we are working hard to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.

Whilst the coronavirus crisis continues, any new building regulation applications should be submitted electronically either via: 

  • email
  • the council’s website application system
  • using the Planning Portal.

Should you require any advice in relation to a current project or require any assistance in submitting an application please call us on 01395 517482 or email us at

Site inspections of ongoing building works should be booked as usual by calling 01395 517482.

Building Control staff will of course be taking all the necessary recommended precautions and non-urgent inspections may be postponed to avoid unnecessary contact subject but we will of course try to ensure that all time sensitive matters are dealt with accordingly. If you have any concerns or questions please get in touch.
