Partner authority scheme

Work with the team you trust

North Kesteven Building Control is committed to the provision of an effective customer focused service that delivers the value expected by our professional customers.

We all like to work with people and organisations we know and trust especially when working on a difficult site, complex design or when introducing innovative design features or construction techniques.

The LABC Partner Authority Scheme (PAS) is designed to help companies and agents that operate in multiple locations and who deal with many local authorities on a daily basis. The scheme enables a company or agent to have a one-to-one working relationship with a preferred local authority for advice and plan appraisal. The site inspections are carried out by the local authorities where each project is carried out.

There are a number of benefits to this scheme including:

  • This scheme simplifies the building regulations process generating substantial savings in time and money
  • A dedicated professional account manager from the preferred local authority becomes part of the design team to offer advice on all projects no matter where they are in the country
  • The single point of contact provided through the scheme results in a consistent approach to plans appraisal

There are no costs 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 inspections.
