What we do, and how we do it...

At STG we pride ourselves on providing a consistently high standard of service.

Our offices are based in the historic town of Rochester (Kent) with a team who are highly capable and experienced in working with compliance systems, processes and procedures. 

Coronavirus Update

We are working hard to keep under review our processes and adapt as required during the pandemic. The health and safety of our staff and customers remains our priority and our surveyors are fully equipped with relevant PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) when making site visits and are mindful of the current government guidelines.  Following Government guidelines to limit contact we introduced a risk-based approach to site inspections which will enable virtual inspections where appropriate and possible.  Our flexible working policy and the actions we have taken internally helps us to minimise the risk of the virus being spread.  This means that STG is in a good position to carry on providing our statutory function during this challenging and unpredictable time. 

The majority of our team are based at home, and should the Government introduce a complete lock-down do not leave any voicemail messages but send all enquiries to our main mailbox which will be monitored during office hours.  

Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. 

As of Monday 2 November 2020:
The following measures have been implemented to ensure as limited disruption to our customers as is possible until the Government advises us that business practices can return to normal:

NB:     Should the Government introduce a complete lock-down then only those applications which have been submitted online, with a payment and plans (where applicable) will be able to be processed.

 We appreciate that this will cause an inconvenience but we must abide by the Government guidelines until they advise that normal business practices can return.
