The Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic leaves us living in unprecedented times. All Northern Ireland’s Building Control Departments are now in a period of recovery, working to resume the delivery of their full range of services while keeping themselves, builders and applicants safe.  This involves new working practices. Please see your Local Council website or contact the Building Control Department in your Local Council area to see what services can be provided currently.
