​​​​​​​​​​​Building Control​​


The Drakenstein Municipality strives to uphold an eco-friendly environment and we strive to maintain that standard.  From 2017 onwards, the building control section went paperless by introducing a new Collaborator online system.

Building Control is responsible for processing all online applications by calculating scrutiny fees and also distributing applications to the various departments after submission. The section is also responsible for all building inspections and also issue occupancy certificates to declare such structure fit for use when completed.

The building control section is the correspondence link between the various departments and the public regarding all building plan submissions or enquiries to ensure a proper clientele base and extend the value of excellent service delivery. The public is welcome to visit the building control help desk during business hours should they require copies of building plans, NBR information, progress of applications, etc.
