Our team are based at home but we are carrying out onsite visits for building projects in line with current Government guidance. (Where this is not practical or safe, we carry out virtual inspections using mobile technology.) The health and safety of our staff and customers remains our priority and our surveyors are fully equipped with relevant PPE when making site visits and are mindful of public guidance. Please call us to book your inspection and your surveyor will agree how this will be carried out. 

Contacting us - There are no plans for us to return to the office so please do not call into the council buildings. You can contact us during office hours to answer any queries and applications are processed and checked as normal. We have put together some common Q&As which you may find useful. Our structural warranty Partners, LABC Warranty's surveyors are also making on-site inspections where safe to do so, whilst recording virtual site visits where it isn't.

who we are

Welcome to Southern Building Control Partnership. Our Partnership was set up in 2017 to bring together the combined experience and professional expertise of three established Local Authority Building Control (LABC) teams.  Today the existing staff at Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge Councils work out of offices at Dorking and Oxted and offer a complete local building control service across the three councils' areas.

About our service

Whether you are building a kitchen extension or a development of new houses, we will work with you and support you through the Building Control process from concept to completion. We aim to make using our service as simple and straightforward as possible, whilst ensuring your project meets the building regulations.
