Collaborative, reliable, experienced

Southern Building Control Partnership brings together the combined experience and professional expertise of three established Local Authority Building Control (LABC) teams based in Dorking and Oxted, Surrey.  The Partnership was set up in 2017 when the Building Control staff at Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge Councils joined together to form an LABC shared service.

Our aim is to work with you and support you through the Building Control process from concept to successful completion, making it as simple and straightforward as possible and ensuring your project complies with the Building Regulations.
