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%.

ISO 9001 Certification

We were delighted to be awarded ISO 9001 certification in December 2018. We worked extremely hard as a team to gain this award which looks at our systems and processes as well as our training and competency.  We hope this helps to demonstrate to our customers how important we consider quality in all aspects of our business.  Building on what we have learnt from this experience we are continuing to improve our internal processes, ensure customer focus and that we continue to deliver customer service excellence.
