'Getting The Builders In' Live Webinar                     

The Local Authority Building Control (LABC) teams in Surrey would like to invite you to join our first free live webinar for homeowners.

About the webinar

We have put together this webinar entitled 'Getting The Builders In', to offer good basic advice and help answer many of the common questions we receive from homeowners embarking on a home improvement project for the first time. Whether you are considering a garage conversion, kitchen extension or taking down a loadbearing wall within your home you should find this webinar helpful. The presentation will cover:

  • The difference between planning permission and building regulations
  • Do you need planning permission for your project?
  • Tips on submitting a successful planning application
  • Why building control is important
  • What types of projects need a building regulations application and how to apply
  • Trading Standards advice on employing builders and agents.


3pm Tuesday 25 May 2021

The webinar will be hosted on Microsoft Teams by Local Authority Planning and Building Control team members and a Trading Standards officer. We anticipate the webinar will last about an hour allowing for questions after the presentations.

How to book

All bookings are being taken by Southern Building Control Partnership, the LABC shared service for Mole Valley, Reigate & Banstead and Tandridge councils. Please contact us using the email link HERE to book your free place and we will forward you a link to join the Microsoft Teams webinar on 25 May. 

Please note we will be recording the presenters, though not any questions raised by participants. The presentation will then be loaded to the Surrey building control teams' websites to help other homeowners. 

After the webinar, there will be an opportunity to arrange a free 1-2-1 chat with your local building control surveyor if that is helpful.
