Building Control

Waterford City & County Council enforces the Building Control Acts and Regulations in Waterford, overseeing the design, construction, and alterations of buildings. Our role is to promote good practices by conducting site visits and inspections. We aim to resolve issues through discussions with builders but can issue enforcement notices and prosecute when necessary.

Compliance with building regulations primarily lies with designers, builders, and owners, and the Council has discretionary power for inspections during construction.
