Partner Authority Scheme

LABC Partnering gives a company a one-to-one relationship with a local authority of their choice. It allows them to carry out the plan checking of all projects with one building control team.

LABC has more than 2500 successful national partnerships with construction companies and professional advisers. It is a practical approach to getting building regulation approval.

It allows the company to link with their chosen authority for the plans approval of all or some of its projects. This removes inconsistency, uncertainty and delays. The benefits to the client include a single point of contact and a consistent interpretation. Here at Swansea we have dedicated officers for the plan checking process.

Site inspections are carried out by the local authority where the project is. They will carry out any local consultations.

You can register your partnership on the LABC website using their Partner Authority Scheme application form.

For more information please contact Jackie Davey, Business Development Officer on 01792 635636 or email jacqueline.davey@swansea.gov.uk.
