Swansea building control is here to make sure that buildings are healthy, safe, sustainable and accessible for all users whether domestic, commercial or public service.
Our building control surveyors carry out an independent check on plans of proposed building work. They inspect the work as it is carried out to make sure it complies with the building regulations.
Building regulations and planning permission are separate. Usually it is necessary to submit applications under both sets of legislation to the council before work is started.
Swansea building control also work very closely with fire safety officers of the Mid and West Wales Fire & Rescue Service.
Peter Richards is the building control team manager. You can contact him with any comments or complaints about the service offered.
