To provide high quality services to this larger community we now want to recruit a Building Control Officer. The post is 37 hours a week but part time working will be considered.


Your duties will involve dealing with applications to carry out controlled building work, including site inspections, the assessment of plans to ensure compliance with the required standards and also to provide advice on building control matters including the need for permission. You will deal with dangerous structures, insecure properties, defective drainage and demolition licensing and maintain up to date knowledge of the building control process and legislation so that accurate information can be given in response to general enquiries.
