Building control

Due to the on-going issue with coronavirus at this time, there is likely to be a delay in the validation of any paper copies of any documentation. We request that all applications are submitted to us electronically or by email to building.control@hounslow.gov.uk - we apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

From Wednesday 1 December 2021, Building Control fees will be increased. Please note, any Building Control applications received after 5pm on Tuesday 30 November 2021 will be subjected to the new fee charge regime. If you would like a copy of the new fees please email building.control@hounslow.gov.uk

We enforce building regulations, a set of legal requirements designed to ensure a minimum standard of building construction works.

This includes both new and existing domestic and non-domestic buildings which are being modified, altered or extended. The regulations cover issues of health and safety and access in and around buildings, but also increasingly cover issues of sustainability, including heat-loss and water consumption.
