Building Control

Our Building Control services are now provided by Hertfordshire Building Control Limited (HBC).

If you currently have an application with Dacorum Building Control, and require plan checking, further inspections or final sign-off of works, your case has been transferred to HBC. An HBC officer will be assigned to the remaining work and will be pleased to speak to you. Just quote your case reference number and the address of the site, and they will take it from there.

HBC was set up in 2016 to provide quality Local Authority Building Control services in seven of Hertfordshire’s 10 districts and boroughs, which own it. We have become its eighth member.

Hertfordshire Building Control ensures quality buildings and adds value for customers and communities by leading the compliance process. It helps to protect the interests of property owners by ensuring that architects and builders operate in compliance with building regulations. It does this in a consultative way to ensure that each project runs as smoothly as possible.

To streamline the application process, Hertfordshire Building Control enables applications to be submitted online, either through the Planning Portal or directly on its website.
