Disruption to water services

If you live in GU5 or GU6 you may be experiencing low water pressure or shortages. Visit Thames Water for updates and advice.

Building Control

Our Building Control service is independent, impartial and not for profit.

The building control team can still be contacted on 01483 444545 or by email buildingcontrol@guildford.gov.uk. Following Government guidance on Covid-19 we are currently providing a very limited site inspection service where we do not need to enter living accommodation and where social distancing can be exercised. We are also processing and plan checking building regulations applications, overseeing dangerous structures, processing demolitions notices and competent person scheme records, providing fee quotations and answering general enquiries.  

The easiest way to submit an application to us is via the Planning Portal's Building Control service.

You can either pay online or by calling on 01483 444545.
