How to contact us

Uttlesford District Council Building Control surveyors check plans and carry out site inspections to ensure that work complies with the requirements of the legislation. You will need to pay a fee for us to check your plans and make any site inspections as it is the Government's intention that the service is self-financing.

Contact us to request a site inspection by telephone or email. Our service operates Monday to Friday (not including bank holidays). A same-day site visit is guaranteed if your request is made before 10am.
