Partner authority scheme

Summary

The use of this scheme permits a “Partner Company” to be twinned with a “Partner Authority” for all future proposals in England and Wales, for the purpose of gaining Building Regulation Plans Approval efficiently through its ongoing relationship with one Local Authority.

At construction stage the Local Authority local to the site “The Inspecting Authority” carries out the site inspections. This guarantees a speedy response for site inspections and access to critical local knowledge held within the Local Authority.

Further information

When a project is placed under the scheme the Partner Company submits a Full Plans Application and the appropriate charge to the Inspecting Authority.

The Inspecting Authority, after carrying out local consultations, then advises the Partner Authority of local issues.

The Partner Authority then examines the proposals and issues the appropriate Decision Advice Notice to the Inspecting Authority who then prepares the Full Plans Approval Notice.

Once twinned with its Partner Company a Partner Authority may also offer additional facilities such as:

  • Advice and consultancy in all areas of the legislative operation, e.g. Building Regulations, Demolitions and Dangerous Structures.
  • Liaison with other Authorities in respect of any aspect of Building Control services.
  • Helping companies evolve and develop building regulation policy within their own organisation and in relation to their areas of operation.

If a partner company is carrying out work of a similar nature nationally there is an immediate benefit in having all their plans examined by its single Partner Authority. Eventually there should also be time and financial savings that will be of benefit to the Partner Company.
