Housing Code Enforcement=Ejecución del Código (o Reglamento) de Viviendas


Explanation:
If they are talking about enforcing the code or law, then, you may also want to use: "Cumplimiento del Código de Viviendas". Es decir las viviendas que construyan tienen que estar de acuerdo con el código y reglamentos de la ley.

In Mexico, these would be understood as


Explanation:
Reglamentos de Construcción (para Zonas Residenciales)... these codes usually state that you can't build a fence around your house, or the fence cannot be higher than x meters, the distance from one window to the neighboring building/construction must be at least x meters, etc. In the US, they obligate residents to mow their lawns, keep their yards clean, not park in so and so spots, etc.

If you would prefer a more general term, Código de Desarrollo Residencial, Código Residencial. As for enforcement, I would suggest "aplicación de" in lieu of "ejecución" since "ejecución" has the connotation of the the code being legally enforced through a court of law, which may not necessarily be the case.

Good luck!
