What we do

The Building Control Section is split into three teams (General Building Control, Major Projects and Administration) reporting to the Building Control Manager. The section is committed to providing a quality, customer focussed, progressive and co-ordinated service. It has achieved ISO 9002 accreditation and has issued a Building Control Charter outlining customer service commitments.

Officers are contactable by mobile phone and site visits outside usual office hours are available by prior arrangement. The section is also responsible for demolitions, dangerous structures and access for the disabled.

Dartford Building control is now meeting the challenges of information technology within the design process for all developments within the borough. The implementation of an electronic document management system now allows the acceptance of design drawings via email.
