Modern, flexible and professional
Southern Building Control Partnership is the Local Authority Building Control Shared Service for Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge Councils, working out of two council office hubs in Dorking and Oxted.
We are part of the only fully national service and as a large and experienced team with in-depth building regulations knowledge, our surveyors can help you find solutions to get the job done quickly and cost effectively. We are easy to contact and all our surveyors and engineers have direct dial and mobile numbers.
Our fees are competitive and good value and we encourage innovation and work electronically - from our online submission portal to onscreen plan checking and liaising with you via phone and email. We check your plans within ten working days or less and as a Local Authority we can give you the peace of mind of an Approval Notice.
We offer same day site visits and if you hit a problem we are there to help with friendly, practical advice. We are an extra pair of eyes you can rely on. We offer lots of other services too - demolition advice, training and CPD seminars. Through LABC Consult we offer energy calcs, acoustic surveys and testing, fire and structural engineering.
If you are planning a new build we work closely with LABC Warranty. They can provide structural warranties, are recognised by all major mortgage lenders and between 2017-18 saw their new home registrations grow by 30%.

Bricks & Mortar Award
The Tandridge building control team was the proud winner of the LABC Warranty Bricks & Mortar Partnership Award in 2016 which recognises one LABC team in the country which goes above and beyond in supporting the warranty scheme and ensuring the Partnership is successful. Our surveyors work closely with the LABC Warranty surveyors on new housing projects ensuring continuity between our two services and that the highest standards of workmanship are maintained.
