The Building Control Service for Portsmouth is now carried out by The Building Control Partnership (BCP) and we are responsible for ensuring that all building works within the Portsmouth city boundary are carried out in accordance with the Building Regulations 2010, the Building Act 1984 and other legislation.

Currently, The Partnership serves the City of Portsmouth, and the boroughs of Gosport and Fareham

Building regulations cover matters such as structural stability, fire safety, energy conservation and accessibility to buildings.

We also carry out other safety roles such as safety at sports grounds, inspection of dangerous structures and demolitions.
