The LABC (Local Authority Building Control) partner authority scheme is designed to help architectural companies which operate in multiple locations and deal with many local authorities. The scheme enables designers to have a one-to-one working relationship with a preferred local authority for their building control support, advice and plans appraisal of their building regulation designs. The site inspections are carried out by the local authority where each project is carried out.
There is no cost involved in registering with the scheme, so it is the best value way to get consistent building control feedback and approval on a national basis with fast local inspection.
There is a charge made for the plans appraisal for each scheme. This is based on our building control fees and charges.
If you are interested in joining us as an LABC partner, please contact Jim Henn, head of building control.
