COVID-19 WORKING - 7 January 2021

Please do not post applications or cheques to us as we have very limited access to the office. Instead you can make an online application/payment here or contact us here for further advice.

Our team are based at home and are offering a full building control service. This includes carrying out site visits for building projects where your builder has assessed it is safe to continue working. We do this  mainly using mobile technology, however where it is essential to carry out a physical site visit we will follow current Government guidance. Please call us to book your inspection and your surveyor will agree how this will be carried out. 

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. Our structural warranty Partners, LABC Warranty's surveyors are making arrangements to carry out inspections in accordance with Government guidance too.

You may find the FAQs document here helpful if you have any further queries about our service following the recent lockdown.

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.
