LABC Partner Authority Scheme

Would you like to work with a dedicated building control surveyor on all of your building regulations submissions regardless of geographical location? This means one online submission route, consistent interpretation of the building regs and pre-app and on-going advice as and when you need it.

Southern Building Control Partnership offers agents, developers and contractors the opportunity to do that through the LABC Partner Authority Scheme.

There is no contract or fee to become an LABC Partner and you can submit building regulations applications for work throughout England and Wales to us. We forward the application details and plans electronically to the inspecting authority on your behalf, saving you time and money.

As a Partner you are assigned your own professionally qualified surveyor or "account manager" who is easily contactable. We carry out a plan check within ten working days (often quicker) and issue the decision notice to the inspecting authority who will issue formal approval and then carry out the inspections once work starts on site.

We already work successfully with over 60 Partners, both smaller businesses and larger developers. If you would like to discuss how we could become an extension of your team please call Sue Daly on 0330 024 9355 for more information.
