We are part of the LABC network. We are based in a single location carrying out the building control function across the two Local Authority areas.

I must say that the Building Control has been really helpful and provided right advice throughout the process. It's a very good team as I have observed. Keep up the good work to help the customers as you always do. Charles and Rohan are great assets to the Building control team in my view.


We were incredibly concerned at the prospect of using building control as first time buyers following all the horror stories we’ve heard. However, we were pleasantly surprised at how easy Warren, Paul and the other inspectors were to deal with. Each of them gave us really good advice before we started the project and therefore we were able to appropriately prepare for anything they’d be looking for.


Dear Natasha and Team Thank you and the admin team for your help on the issue of our completion certificate. We met our deadline but only due to your understanding and great customer service.


Many thanks for your email and the certificate of completion. I would like to add having Rohan round doing 2 of our inspections was a pleasant experience. He was both knowledgeable and helpful and a great advocate for Wokingham Borough Council.
