|Snap site inspections to improve quality - LABC – the independent organisation representing more than 3000 building surveyors working for local councils – has welcomed changes which should lead to higher quality building work and clamp down on rogue builders.
Previous rules had meant that building sites could only be inspected at set stages of building projects. But, from 6 April 2013 changes mean local councils can inspect, with notice, building sites at any stage of the building process. This will help to make sure buildings are built to safe, sustainable and fire resistant standards.
