New app to make booking site inspections easier

Published: Friday, 22 September 2017

Booking a building control inspection for building sites or domestic improvements has been made a whole lot easier with the launch of a new app.

The app, which has been developed using the Local Authority Building Control App template, goes live today and will enable people to book their inspections on their phone and whilst on site.

It uses the GPS function on smart phones to identify people’s location and corresponding Council to book an inspection with. Users then just need to fill in a short form to complete their request, which comes with the promise of a same day visit if booked before 10am.

Cllr Tim Hadland, Cabinet member for regeneration, enterprise and planning, said: “We’re always looking for ways to make our services more accessible to businesses and residents.

“The launch this new app helps to streamline the booking process, as well as making it easier to stick to building deadlines by allowing people to book their inspection whilst on site or on the move.”
