COVID-19 - Inspection restrictions

Business continuity and inspection advice during the COVID-19 pandemic.

General correspondence and application processing

  • Any applications we are currently processing will continue as usual
  • Use our bcontrol@swindon.gov.uk email for applications, fee quotes or other requests

Site inspection work

  • All site inspections will be undertaken. All visits are still risk assessed to suit each job but in the absence of physical inspections, we will seek to virtually inspect and record as much as possible.

Site inspections

The following inspections will be carried out however, all social distancing procedures must be followed to enable us to enter a property:

  • Pre-application advice
  • Foundation excavations
  • Oversite
  • Drainage
  • Structure
  • Occupations
  • Completions

All commercial inspection requests will be risk assessed on an individual basis.

If you follow this guidance, we will ensure the construction work continues without delay.
